Could someone provide some more clarification of Protean?

#1TheJester2Posted 3/27/2014 11:04:38 AM
I did some light Googling and didn't get the answers I wanted.

A) I assume Greninja w/ Protean get's STAB on all attacks he uses?

B) The wording is a bit weird, but it seems like Protean changes both types right? So if he uses a psychic attack, he's change from Water/Dark to straight Psychic.

C) Does changing into a type grant it the standard immunities of that type. So, for example, if he becomes Grass, he can't be effected by powders, if he becomes Electric, he can't be paralyzed by T-Wave, Steel can't be poisoned, etc.

Thanks!

What happens though if he gets burned/poisoned and he switches to that type. Does he still continue to get harmed or will it pause? There is currently no way for a steel or poison type to get poisoned or a fire type to get burned.

You still take damage from the effect, like if you changed to poison type but you were already hit with Toxic.

Using Soak to change a Steel to Water type and poisoning it still makes it poisoned, even if it switches out and become Steel again. Changing types does not automatically save you from ailments.

Incidentally, if you use a Water or Dark attack first, you change to pure whatever type it was. You don't stay Water/Dark.
