Critical hits are now 1.5x damage instead of 2. The stages seem to have been altered as well, but testing is still being done to figure out exactly how. - unsigned comment from Ctom42 (talk • contribs)
It's known that maximum affection in the Pokémon-amie increases a Pokémon's critical hit ratio. Does it achieve this by adding one more stage, or is it something else entirely? I have an Absol with super luck, maximum affection, and shadow claw, which should bring it to stage 3 if this theory is accurate. Once I get the scope lens, I'll see if it automatically crits every time. Though so far I don't think I've seen it not crit, implying max. affection adds two stages.Treehugger0123 (talk) 01:58, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
While it is true that Farfetch'd will auto-crit when using stick and a high-crit move, this is a symptom of the larger changes to critical hits. It is also true that focus energy and a high crit move will auto-crit. I can see this piece of information being an ok place holder until the new critical hit stages have been researched, but it should definitely be replaced by a chart detailing the stages in 6th gen once the research is complete.

X Defense and X Spe Defense
Do critical hits ignore defense boosts from x items?
- Since X Items raise stats like regular moves do, yes. Also, please remember to leave your signature on your messages. Lanthanum (talk) 04:30, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
- Thanks. Should it be mentioned in the article then? I am not that good at writing. RubyLeafGreenCrystal (talk) 04:41, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
