Question about the Guts ability...

#1Hirokey123Posted 4/7/2010 4:30:25 PM
Yeah so how would the Guts ability work with the flame orb on a physical attacker?

I mean burn cuts physical attack in half but how does that factor in with the Guts ability?

Like off the top of my head lets say I had an Ursaring (because I can't think of any other pokemon with the Guts ability right now) and it was holding the flame orb. The flame orb burns it and activates the Guts ability.

So now how would this work? Would it be better than the toxic orb or no?

If a Pokemon is burned and has Guts, the attack cut is nullified. Same thing for Quick Feet, speed, and paralyze.

ah ok then thats cool thanks.

I guess I'll focus on getting a Flame orb instead of a Toxic orb.

So what is the toxic orb even good on exactly?

Toxic Orb is usable with Guts users and gives less damage if you switch out within two turns (same damage at three turns, more at four).

Hm ok then I'll need to consider carefully then. I guess for now I'll focus on getting both of them and the decide what route to take.

Whats the purpose of a flame orb anyway?
#10Hirokey123(Topic Creator)Posted 4/7/2010 5:18:35 PM
A pokemon holding flame orb becomes burned at the end of the turn.

Toxic orb does the same but change burn to baddly poisoned.

On the first two turns Toxic does less damage than Flame but on turn 3 it's equal and turn 4 and onward the Toxic begins to do way more than burn.

It's useful on pokemon with the guts ability because they gain a boosted attack for having a status, while at the same time they don't suffer the effects of the attack cut from burn.
