Generation VI: Clarifying. It was hard to read before
====Generation VI====
In a Single Battle, if the user is not already Ghost-type and becomes Ghost-type before executing Curse (due to [[Mega Evolution]], {{a|Color Change}} or {{m|Trick-or-Treat}}), Curse will execute as it does for all Ghost types, hurting the user and inflicting the curse.
 
In a Double Battle, if the user is not already Ghost-type and becomes Ghost-type before executing Curse (due to Mega Evolution, Color Change or Trick-or-Treat), Curse will now target the user's ally (or fail if there is none) if the user is on the right side (from its Trainer's perspective), or a random opponent if the user is on the left side (from its Trainer's perspective). {{m|Follow Me}} and {{m|Rage Powder}} will still redirect Curse as normal.
 
In a Triple Battle or [[Horde Encounter]], if the user is not already Ghost-type and becomes Ghost-type before executing Curse (due to Mega Evolution, Color Change or Trick-or-Treat), Curse will now target a random adjacent opponent.

In a Double Battle, if the user is not already Ghost-type and becomes Ghost-type before executing Curse (due to Mega Evolution, Color Change or Trick-or-Treat), Curse may target a different Pokémon deppending on the user's position. If the user is on the right side (from its Trainer's perspective), Curse will target the user's ally (or fail if there is none). If the user is on the left side (from its Trainer's perspective) Curse will target a random opponent.
{{m|Follow Me}} and {{m|Rage Powder}} will still redirect Curse as normal.
 
If the user is not already Ghost-type and becomes Ghost-type due to {{a|Protean}} upon executing Curse, the user will use the Ghost-type Curse on itself (regardless of {{m|Follow Me}} or {{m|Rage Powder}}). This means that the user will lose half of its maximum HP and also receive the curse, losing ¼ of its maximum HP at the end of each following turn. This cannot be blocked by {{m|Crafty Shield}}.
