Yesterday I totally couldnt fell asleep, so I was thinking of various stupid things and a kind of stupid idea came to me: to calculate maximal damage possible (counting with overkill, I mean it's "How much hp need that other guy have to survive this hit"). So I started calculating. Maybe my choose of pokemon is not perfect, but...
In red corner we got
Darmanitan lv.100 @choice band
Lonely with Sheer Force
atk:416 (with choice band 624)
+some other poke in team got Screech
In blue corner we got
So the fight begins:
- Another Poke uses Screech on leavanny 3 times (her def becomes 5/4=1,25)
- Switch in Darmanitan
- Darmanitan uses belly drum (his atk becomes (624*4=2496) and he swithes out and in to negate effect of Sash
- Darmanitan uses Sunny Day and swithes out and in again
- Darmanitan uses Flare Blitz! Critical Strike!
So how much theoretical damage It deals? Counting:
Atk power is 120*1,3 (Sheer Force)=156
Modifier is STAB(1,5)*Double Effective(4)*Crit(2)*Sunny Day(1,5)*rand[0.85..1](we got lucky and got 1)=18
Damage=((2*lvl(100)+10)/250)*(atk(2496)/def(1.25))*(Power(156))+2)*Modifier(18)=4 709 928
So its almost 5 million damage
I know that was useless and just an empty theory and I'm stupid to think about this stupidity at all, but that poor Leavanny should better get those 4 709 929 Hp I guess...
Sorry for wasting that minute or two of your life
