User:Nescientist/Move research notes

These are my notes from after I went through all moves and compared them with UPC, Showdown and others. (They were originally written for personal use, but they might be useful for anyone regardless.) May not be up to date, and I don't plan to update this, really. I'm not mad if someone else "uses my work" such as for improving Bulbapedia (that's why I publish them), as long as they don't mistake these notes as "proof" per se.

A-Z things

Bigger "projects" (some of which might need approval)

  • -Accuracy misses (SnorlaxMonster talk)
  • Accuracy move
  • Berry SM descriptions
  • Crash damage article creation
  • Critical hit
    • Done, except for Stick/Lucky Punch set the value to 2 in GenII (and ignore the rest), and checking the Wonder Launcher Dire Hits (currently unable)
  • HP-draining moves substitute (as per Substitute (move)): no heal GenI, fails Gen II, heals lost by substitute GenIII+ (Dream Eater GenV+))
  • Move Infobox updated template creation
    • Waiting for approval. Still.
  • Multi-strike moves wording; substitute break+continue GenII
    • I think I've only done Twineedle? Rule of thumb: Substitute page is correct.
  • PRNG GenI/II
  • Protection moves article creation
  • Sound moves substitute GenVI+
    • Should be fine with the new infobox and related updates?
  • Target/range article creation
  • Weather-inducing moves/Abilities simplification (creates {{weather|<weather>}} and that's it)
  • Weight article creation (&Autotomize)

Contradictions to Showdown (battle engine)

  • [some rounding/precision and/or power vs. damage]
  • Flags:
    • [some (new) authentic/mirrormove flags]
  • Other (not already mentioned above):
    • Struggle GenII+III 50% recoil (..no!?)
    • Tickle GenIII through substitute (tested, added)
    • Tri-Attack GenII fails to inflict status to Normal-types (..no)

Additional Showdown

  • Assist: +Bestow, HoldHands
  • Copycat: +Bestow, CircleThrow, DragonTail, NaturePower (GenV+), RagePowder, Transform (GenV+); +BanefulBunker, Roar/Whirlwind (GenVI+)
  • Final Gambit contact GenV ONLY (see talk there)
