So I was battling some Gyarados with my delta Bisharp and I noticed and when Intimidate activated instead of raising the attack by 2 stages, it only increased it by 1. I tested it again with other Gyrados and the same thing happened. Is this a bug or a feature? also why cant my d bisharp learn sword dance it literally has sword for hand
- defaint raises yoour attack by 2 stages when a stat is lowered. the gyrados had intimidate which lowered the d.bisharps by one stage, and then defaint reaisd it by 2, gaining a net +1 attack boost
- as stupid as it sounds d.bisharp doesnt get swords dance, even tho its literally the flying sword pokemon
defiant isnt like anger point where it always raises attack to a certain stage regardless of its current stage
no? defiant was never like that, ever
Oh yeah I was wrong. Sorry.
The reason it was good was it’s physically bulky, hits like a truck, gets an SD off Defog, +1 off Lando, and has access to Sucker Punch and Knock Off, two useful moves. Also, a great typing.
