According to almost everyone on this board, Steel Wing has a 9.8% chance of lowering the opponents defense.

HOWEVER, in my experience, and by that I mean battling, Steel Wing seems to raise my defense. My game is not messed up. I use Steel Wing, it tells me my defense went up.

I am not getting it confused with Metal Claw, Iron Tail, or any other steel-type attack, so what I want to know is this; where do you guys get your information? I know what I see when I'm battling, and I see that Steel Wing raises my defense. Why?!

I need to clear this up, and I'm sick of people thinking I'm an idiot just because I pay close attention to my in-battle messages. What is everyone's experience with Steel Wing? Did it lower your opponents defense, or did it raise your defense? I need to know!!!

It raises your pokemon's defense.

I could put something funny and witty here, but I'm not. So there.

I love Steel Wing (Go Skarmory!). It has something like a 20% chance of raising your own defense. That makes more sense than lowering your opponent's defense anyway. The move would harden a creature's wings right before striking them meaning thier Defense would raise.
