- If your Pokemon uses Rock smash while holding a shed bell, you can give the damage but your HP does not get recovered. It works properly on Strength - If your Pokemon uses the moves that affect Encourage effect while holding a life orb, the effect of an ability still works (1.3X), but does not lose HP (1/10) - Also when it is similar situation as above, Opponent's Escape button and Red card's effects get canceled. - Apparently, when the moves that affect an ability "Encourage" get activated, it overlaps the effects of items in which causes the item's effect to get ignored.
Flare blitz has nothing to do with Encourage so the effect about Life orb that I mentioned is irrelevant. I am sorry if this is old but you misunderstood my topic dear. --- Pokemon HeartGold FC: 4855 5769 3477 Pokemon White FC: 4512 6137 9936
^Wut? Flare Blitz has a 10% to burn (a secondary effect) which would activate encourage. If Hihidaruma was holding a LO the LO recoil would be canceled out. COMPLETELY relevant to what you posted --- "I'm not paranoid, but I'm a firm believer in Murphy's Law."-Neopopulus
Unfortunately, no, and you'll be taking lots of it cause you'll be doing some massive damage to anything that doesn't resist it. --- "I'm not paranoid, but I'm a firm believer in Murphy's Law."-Neopopulus
