Wierd Pokemon Showdown Happening?

#1Callahan2Posted 4/5/2014 11:13:54 PM
It was a standard 6v6 battle.

My Scrafty was hit by Hyper Voice for super effective damage. Hyper Voice on bulbapedia is listed as a normal move. Jellicent was then hit with the "normal" Hyper Voice and it should have been immune. It wasn't.

Then this happened.
Jellicent used Ice Beam!
It's super effective! The opposing Zapdos lost 36% of its health!
Jellicent used Ice Beam!
The opposing Zapdos lost 15% of its health!

Why was it super effective once and not the second time?

Edit: Hyper Voice probably got Pixilated.

Was Hyper Voice used by Sylveon or Mega Gardevoir? If so, their abilities changed it to the Fairy-type.

Did Zapdos Roost before the second Ice Beam? If so, Zapdos lost its Flying-type and became pure Electric during that turn causing Ice Beam to hit neutrally.

Pixelate Hyper Voice Gardevoir/Sylveon
Pixelate changes all normal type moves a fairy type move

Sylveon or Mega Gardevoir used Hyper Voice. Their ability Pixilate turns Normal moves into Fairy moves, so that's why Scrafty got wrekked.

Roost removes your Flying type during that turn, so after using Roost, Zapdos is neutral to Ice Beam as it's considered pure Electric at the time.

Roost, when used, Pokemon lose Flying type for that turn. So no flying means no super effective ice because Electric Zapdos is not weak to ice.

Pixilate makes Hyper Voice Fairy type, thus making it SE against Scrafty.

Zapdos must have used Roost. Roost makes the pokemon a normal type for the rest of the turn.

Roost removes the Flying Type from the pokemon using it for that one turn. It's because the pokemon is "resting", so it's not flying
