View Full Version : I'm really confused about STATS!

I can't get my head around how much damage an attack does. Can someone help?

If you look at "summary" on a specific attack, it will have a number for its pp, a number for its accuracy and another number which I thought was how much damage it inflicted. The way I understand it, is this it's base damage before other factors such as nature, effectiveness, the level of def/sp. def the opponent has and the level of att/sp. att you have?

So say an attack has a number 60 for a grass attack. My special attack was 10 and their special defense was 5, would this take 65 hitpoints?

No, I don't think so..
Say, if you use bubble. Your Special Attack is 200
Their Special Defence is 230. It won't do minus 10 will it...
I dunno how it works.
It's not the base damage, it's the base POWER.
Have no idea what it does though...xD
