In the pokemon information sections, it says Tauros and other Normal types are Immune to Ghost attacks, but I know that Tauros is affected by Confuse Ray which is a Ghost type move. What's going on?

You just need to do a bit more reading!

Type immunities are only applicable to physical and special attacks. Confuse Ray is neither of these, so it works fine against Normals. The same goes for Night Shade.

Lick is the only Ghost attack which is subject to the usual modifiers.

Ok, so lick doesn't work at all against normal type pokemon? Which ghost moves in Gold/Silver are like this?

Any ghost attack (in g/s) that deals damage directly (ala Lick, Nightshade, Shadowball) will NOT effect normal-types. Ones that deal indirect damage (ala Confuse-ray, that Voodoo like attack, I think that's ghost-attack) can.

I wonder why they programmed it like that... I just don't understand why a Ghost can't lick a Pidgey.... oh well.

Again, just pointing out...if you have a question about an attack (say, Lick, or Confuse Ray), you can spend a couple seconds looking the attack up on the main site and often find your answer. Example:

Hmm, Night Shade doesn't affect Normals in G/S anymore? It definitely does in R/B/Y...

Mr. K : I was just wondering why Confuse Ray affects Normals even though Ghost moves weren't supposed to. My question was answered in this thread, and going to the site pages wouldn't have helped, in fact they didn't help cause I had gone to those pages earlier. Don't assume I'm stupid because I have a question.

For future reference (and just so there's no goofs) that Voodoo-like attack is called Curse and it is a ghost type attack.

I'm sorry, we've just had a rash of laziness going around lately.

I didn't realize that you wanted to know why Confuse Ray didn't work.

For the record, it's mentioned in a few places around the site, but I admit that it's not mentioned on the individual pages.

Sorry to be so bitchy, but certain lazy people around here have made me a little sensitive to such questions...
