Pokemon's stats are basically what make up the pokemon along with the power of the moveset. Each stat. is numbered to the spcl.def/def. of the defending pokemon. and so froth. Its all math if you think about it, and luck also has extreme factors in battles. After these words on how pokemon batles work I have a question. please answer this if you know this.
here's an example to my hard question
Marowak
Pikachu
Marowak does E-quake. As many of us know it will get STAB for this, however the .5 is the thing I do not get. Does the .5 add 50% of the total beginning hit or does it 50 points to the power of E-quake? The same goes for Sunnyday/Rain Dance. Does the 50% boost of the certin poke's raise to the total starting damage of flamethrower/surf or does it add half the power of the move by .5. Or does it not really matter in the long run when they give off the same damage. Im thinking it really has no diff. but stats. would effect the 150 power E-quake and half the damage adding to the basic damage. Thank you, please answer this question if anyone knows it. *bows*

To answer your question, in STAB, if a Pokemon's attack matches its type, its power is 150% its original value.

Basically, it all adds 50%.

A stab would result in multiplying the attack part of the formula by 1.5, thus where the 1.5 is inserted does not matter.

Why don't you look at the non-forum part of the site?

The STAB is multiplied onto the final damage. In the case of Marowak vs. Pikachu, the average damage is 385, as opposed to the 383 it would be if it multiplied the attack base power.

does this mean stab is applied to the damage AFTER it becomes an integer? so if a pokémon were to do 12.8 points of damage it would only do 18 with stab (int(int(12.8)*1.5)=int(12*1.5)=int(18)=18) as opposed to 19 (int(12.8*1.5)=int(19.2)=19)?

I always thought that to, though I made a damage calculator on my computer with C++, and the only time it changes to an interger is after every thing is calculated, and it has proven to be very accurate in it's findings.

The calculation rounds down any decimals to the lower integer after every step, if that's what you mean.
