...What?!?! I'm dying to know what I inadvertently did? And you forgot to add the defense bonuses for Stockpile.

I looked with panic at Saline. She was about to be struck by some unknown electric attack and I needed to think quickly; if she was hit, there was no telling whether she would survive due to her typing. I quickly whirred through information mentally as the world seemed to slow down.
Something occured to me. I remembered the introduction paper to the National Park. It was a pamphlet that dictated tips for trainers entering the park. It was talking about battle tricks to improve survivability:
~|~Tips for Battling in the National Park~|~
(1)Some Pokemon have natural poisons and may inflict poison status without using a poison inducing move.
(2)Grass types gain an immunity to electric types when they grasp the ground.
(3)Using a physical, steel-type move on the ground grants immunity to electric type moves for the duration of the attack.
"Saline! Use Metal Claw on the ground quickly!! Follow it up with Brine if you have time!" Saline responded without considering and her fins glowed and solidified into a blinding silver. She smashed her right claw into the ground just as I noticed a fork of bright and thick lightning hastening at the speed of light towards Saline from the dark clouds above.
I clenched my eyes shut before it hit an image etched upon my eyelids. If the defense against the electric attack was successful, then Saline would carry out the Brine attack as she always did. She would hold out her fins in front of her and a glassy orb would coalesce there, growing in size gradually. When it had reached the size of a beach ball and was deep, ocean blue, she would let loose a harsh spray of salty sea water at the Munchlax, smashing into him as rough as a deep sea tsunami.
I heard the lightning fry through the air and looked at the results of the attack.
