Meow. It seems I'm having some problems to understand how this Ability works. According to Pokémon Forever, damage from physical attacks increases to 1.5 times, while average accuracy lowers to 80%.
Does this mean that damage caused by moves depending on the Attack stat is increased, or is the Attack stat actually raised 50%, making these moves deal more damage? I'm confused... (@_@)

Woof woof? Please don't poop in my garden. [Smile]

If the Attack stat itself is actually raised, it certainly does not show up in the game when you check your Pokemon's stats. So I would say the damage from physical attacks is what is raised.

But what difference is there? I don't see how the difference could even be detected in Ruby/Sapphire (no stat cap at 999 anymore).

The difference would show up if you used Meditate too often, or if your opponent used Psych Up. Either way, I doubt it's a normal Attack boost; I'd say the [power] part of the damage formula just gets a *1.5 tacked on.
