Golurkian Conflicts


Recommended Posts

So, let's say we have a Pokemon, that has more than one type.

AO-Golurk is the most extreme example, running up to 5 types at once (Psychic, Fighting, Electric, Fire, and Water with the eons - WOW)

Let's say this Golurk is fighting an Yveltal-ex holding a hard charm.
Yveltal is weak to electric, but resistant to fighting.

How does the calculation go for damage?

Is it: ((Base Power - 20) * 2) - 20 (giving us 180 damage) or ((Base Power * 2) - 20) -20 (giving us 200 damage)? And then if there's something on the opponent's bench, how does that work?

And does it make a difference if going against Malamar-EX (with a weakness to fighting, resistant to Psychic?) The difference being that Golurk is natively psychic, gets fighting from its own ability, and electric / fire / water from the bench.

Has this been established?


Edit: math error - Golurk still kills Yveltal and Malamar, but the question remains if there are other factors in play.

See how weakness is listed before resistance on the cards?  That's the order of operations for damage calculation.  There's been an official ruling clarifying this.

So, it's independent of how that type modifier was applied - ability or from the bench, all are considered the same.


(Muscle band I know is before weakness and resistance, hard charm is after because they say it explicitly.)
