Does anyone know of any research on this move? The only description I've seen syas, "Your Pokémon switches its type to the type most resistant to your opponent's attacks." So if you're up against a Fighting type, would it you become a Ghost type for complete immunity, or a Psychic or Flying? If you were up against a Fire type, would you become water, or rock(or something else)? What about when Conversion 2 is used against dual types? I'm not sure how much this move has been looked into, but if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd appretiate it.

Thanks.

It's related to the attack last used by your opponent. For example, when my Poliwhirl used Psychic, it became a Dark-type, but when I used Surf, it became a Grass-type. I assume that it would become a Ghost-type after a Normal-type or Fighting-type attack.

What a coincidence, I just tested Conversion/Conversion2 today.

Both attacks consider Hidden Power's type as Normal.

Conversion 2 chooses an attack type that is half-effective or immune to the attack opponent last used. If more than one type fulfill this, then one of these types is chosen at random.

poccil's info is correct. i'm rather surprised he's actually testing all this stuff now, but...

not to mention, for those of you who haven't yet used the attack (which i assume, or you wouldn't have asked your question), it says plain as day what type your pokémon takes on, so there's no mystery in a link battle like there is with hidden power.

I seem to remember someone saying that if you have an attack of a type that is immune/resistant to the attack they used, that's the type your monster will become.

Let's put everything up at once, as this question has been making the rounds and I have enough time to do something about it right now. I'm somewhat hesitant to do this as poccil will just steal anything he hasn't worked out yet (which reminds me, I need to send out a few e-mails over his theft for Substitute).

Anyway...

Conversion 2 converts the using pokemon to a type that is either immune or resistant to the base type of the move last used by the opposing pokemon.

Selection of the immune or resistant type is completely random, with no preference/weighting given to whether the type is immune or resistant.

The qualification of move is given in order to clear up possible confusion with the distinction of damaging and non-damaging attacks. Conversion 2 works off of any move that the current opposing pokemon has just used, including moves that only affect the opposing pokemon (such as stat changers like Agility).

Due to Conversion 2 working off of the last move that the opponent used, it is subject to the effects of evade/accuracy modifiers such as Double Team.

Due to the base type qualifier for the move, Hidden Power will be treated as a Normal type move (as noted) and Conversion 2 will always fail when the opponent uses Curse.

Circumstantial evidence also indicates that the using pokemon will get STAB off of the type converted to by using Conversion 2. No numbers have been run on those tests, however.

Does Conversion 2 only work after actual ATTACKS or after ALL moves? If it works for all moves, what type does Porygon(2) become after Curse?

Read the post right above yours. It contains the answers to both of your questions.

How long does Conversion/Conversion 2 last?
The user retains its new type until the user is switched. This was proven by using Conversion to give Flareon a type of Normal, switching to another Pokemon, and switching back. Lick used by the enemy still aaffected Flareon.

Can it be transferred via Baton Pass?
The temporary type is not transferred.
