All of the following examples took place on Stadium G/S

Ok, just incase you all don't know, Present and Pain Split are both Normal Attacks (or atleast that's what they "claim" to be)

Example One:

Delibird Vs. Misdreavous

Delibird uses Present
The Move doesn't affect Misdreavous

So, Present won't work against a Ghost type. I only tested it once. I wonder if it determines anything at all though? Like, maybe the damage part of Present won't take place but maybe the "restore HP" option could? Either way, I used it once and the game said doesn't affect.

Example #2

Misdreavous Vs. Gastly

Despite Pain Split being a Normal type attack it works against Gastly.

But, here's the neat part which I have discovered previously by accident... Pain Split can miss! It works off accuracy. If Gastly had Double Teamed Up, Pain Split could have missed.

I know some of this may be insignificant almost to the point of worthless knowledge, but, I felt like posting my findings anyway

This is the first time I have really even dealt with Present majorly or something. I know that when you use it, it will either hurt or aid the opponent. Anyone know how it works on Stadium? I heard that on G/S there was a glitch or somethin that TYPE determined how much damage it did or somethin? If anyone has any info plz reply, thanks...

That Pain Split thing happened to me as well when my Weezing was up against Koga's 6 DT Crobat on stadium. I got the first one to hit (then I assumed it always hit no matter what) Then the second time it missed

That's on GS

Stadium it will have a base power of 40, 80 or 120 and either deals damage or heals however much pops out the other side.
