My Max HP and Defense Donphan just can't seem to take hits like my level 100 one. Of course, by that I mean lvl50 vs lvl50 and lvl100 vs lvl100. --- PSN: Frostheat_22------------------3DS FC: 3566 1658 5247 "You would probably do better in pvp if you didn't take advice from your mom." - WATAUGACJ
Well it might be the IVs like the above poster suggested. Even at level 50, you've gotta remember everyone else's stuff is halved too. So you are getting hammered with halved attacks that are going up against your halved defenses. --- I juss dun understayand.
Everything ends up doing slightly more damage at level 50, so your Donphan will end up taking a bit more damage. Here's an example:
Lv. 100 252+ SpA Mew Shadow Ball vs. Lv. 100 252 HP / 0 SpD Mew: 160-190 (39.6 - 47%) Lv. 50 252+ SpA Mew Shadow Ball vs. Lv. 50 252 HP / 0 SpD Mew: 84-100 (40.5 - 48.3%)
This ends up being about 2.8% more damage at level 50, which may not seem like much but it can turn some 3HKO's into 2HKO's and 2HKO's into OHKO's or at least give them a better chance of happening. --- 3DS FC: 5257 - 9998 - 2632 Pokemon Y Name: Benjamin
The scaling between lvl50 and lvl100 actually slightly favors stats with lower base. The difference is very slight though, it will rarely make a difference in a battle --- PSN: UmaiCake || 3DS FC: 2079-6748-0153 || Pokemon XY IGN: Umai www.twitch.tv/umaicake
