    Default Battle Stat Changes

    Ever wonder about the numbers behind some of the moves that increase or decrease stats during a battle?

    When you look up moves on most websites, they list the moves in stage changes instead of percentages.

    A pokemons stat can be anywhere from Stage -6 to Stage +6.
    I am guessing they used stages as a simple variable to keep tract of multiple stat changes and it easy to clear out without affecting the original value.

    So, if you cast Swords Dance on your Ninjask, its attack level goes to Stage +2, but then your opponent casts Growl, your Ninjask is now at Stage +1.

    In general, if a move says sharply or harshly it is a 2 stage change, and anything else is just 1 stage.

    Raising stats: Atk, Def, Sp.Atk, Sp.Def, Speed
    Stage Percentage
    0 (Normal) 100%
    +1 150%
    +2 200%
    +3 250%
    +4 300%
    +5 350%
    +6 400%


    Lowering stats: Atk, Def, Sp.Atk, Sp.Def, Speed
    Stage Percentage
    0 (Normal) 100%
    -1 66%
    -2 50%
    -3 40%
    -4 33%
    -5 28.5%
    -6 25%



    Accuracy and Evasion have a different table

    Raising stats: Accuracy and Evasion
    Stage Percentage
    0 (Normal) 100%
    +1 133%
    +2 166%
    +3 200%
    +4 233%
    +5 266%
    +6 300%

    Lowering stats: Accuracy and Evasion
    Stage Percentage
    0 (Normal) 100%
    -1 75%
    -2 60%
    -3 50%
    -4 43%
    -5 37.5%
    -6 33%



    Critical Hit Percentage
    Normal attacks have a 6% chance of being a critical hit.
    If a move says "High Critical Hit Ratio", it has a 12.5% chance of critical hit.
    Objects such as Scope Lens doubles the percentage.
    The ability Super Luck also doubles the percentage.

    So here is some math for you...

    Absol
    Move: Night Slash - 12.5% Critical hit percentage
    Ability: Super Luck - 25%
    Holding: Scope Lens - 50%

    On paper, that means every other attack should be a critical hit.

    Its a bummer neither Absol or Honchkrow (the only two pokemon with Super Luck ability) can learn Focus Energy. That move also doubles the critical hit percentage.

    Where did you come by this info?

    I was under the impression that each stage raised stats by about 10%-12%, not the 50% bonus your charts are showing.

    I was looking for the math on this and found it first on forums that I won't link to here, but then I also found it on the following websites.

    It doesn't have Super Luck, but if you used focus energy twice and then Cross Chop, you would have a guaranteed critial hit...if it were still alive somehow.

    Can you use Focus Energy twice? Or would it fail the second time?
