I refuse to watch a video created by a Stunfisk hater I'll watch the video in a minute, fine.
I watched the video to see Sableye's animation, and Yamamoto didn't even use it!? >.>
...whatever. But WOAH, Sylveon just took a critical hit Hydro Pump from Life Orb Politoed in the rain with about half health left. Is that even possible without a water resist? I don't fully understand...
I did a damage calc, and an uninvested Politoed will take away, at minimum, 37% of Max Sp. Defense Blissey's HP. With max Sp. Attack that changes to a minimum of 53%. So, unless Sylveon has absolutely absurd special bulk, Fairy seems to be resistant to water, even if the video didn't say it. Going off the stats Eeveelutions are assigned (60/65/65/95/110/130), even if Sylveon had maxed out 110 base HP and 130 base Sp. Defense that attack should have barely left it living, if not just straight out killed it.
Sylveon has Cute Charm, btw, so it wasn't an ability.
I really hope I'm not missing something, because it looks like Fairy resists water.
Edit: Okay, before it looks like I don't know what I'm talking about (....), I didn't actually check the video (read: not captions) footage to see if it said "not very effective", or something. Because apparently I'm too lazy to check that but I'm fine with doing a million calculations.

T'is a shame that battle was staged... but the idea of Topsy-Turvey + a -2 Sp.A move is a neat one. It directly counters an opponent's strategy that increase a Poke's stats on the first turn. I'm sure that exact move combination will be wholly obsolete by the time competitive Doubles is established for XY, but it's thought-provoking none the less
Serebii's sources claim that the rumors of Pokeamie havin' a positive effect during battle are true. More importantly, they offer actual details as to these effects.
Is that the sound of a new clause, I hear?Originally Posted by Serebii
