- STAB on non-damaging moves?
Wasn't sure if this was the proper place to put this, but anyways:
Why is STAB listed for non-damaging moves such as Screech? Pokemon like Honchkrow don't get STAB on Screech, it doesn't do any damage >_<
This brings up another point, why isn't there a flag for "does damage"? seems like it would be pretty simple to add.
Anyways thanks for putting up with my nitpicking.
It shouldn't be. I'm pretty sure there's already a bug filed for that.
Anything physical or special does direct damage. There are a few non-damaging things that can take HP away without directly doing damage (Spikes, Pain Split) but I think most cases would be covered by looking for physical-or-special.
Yes, but the move Me First apparently deals direct damage, even though it is neither physical nor special. Or am I wrong?
