Talk:Critical hit

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 (talkcontribs)

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)
It doesn't need to be. Otherwise you'd have to find every move that raises Def and Sp. Def and fix those too. The definition of critical hits already covers this. Lanthanum (talk) 04:43, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
OK. RubyLeafGreenCrystal (talk) 04:45, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
