Something's wrong with my Life Orb ...

#1rattlexPosted 2/5/2013 8:18:31 PM
I'm using Darmanitan with Sheer Force and Life Orb equipped...

I was sure that yesterday when I used on PWT the Life Orb drained its HP every turn, but today the Life Orb didn't drain its HP at all, whether I go battle a wild or a trainer...

is it me or the life orb somewhat busted ??

If a Pokemon with Sheer Force equips a Life Orb and uses an attack that activates Sheer Force, the Life Orb will activate but will not drain any HP. That's just how it works.

Life Orb boosts the amount of dmg you do, but drains off a little HP every time you attack, I think. It's not an effect like poison or burn that kicks in at the end of a round IIRC. Are you thinking of the Toxic or Flame Orb hold items that inflict Toxic and Burn on you maybe?

Sheer Force also prevents a few other items from activating. Pretty much anything that takes effect after the attack connects (Eject Button, Red Card).

So you're getting both the Life Orb boost and the sheer force boost from cancelling the life orb? That seems terribly broken. If Flare Blitz's recoil is cancelled too, Scarf Darmanitan would be unstoppable.

*Looks it up*

Oh, so Life Orb's recoil will be cancelled if the move you use activates Sheer Force. Well, I guess that would come in handy with rock slide (especially in VGC).

Well now im more confused...

suddenly my Life Orb drained my Darmanitan's HP... @_@a what's happening here? a minute ago the life orb didnt affect me at all...

I guess sheer force doesn't cancel the life orb's effect, it could be a glitch...

I'm only using Rock Slide and Zen headbutt... and it said "Lost its some HP" that's obviously from the Life Orb...

but sometimes its effect just disappear ... @_@a
