Do Hidden Powers get STAB? I know they aren't boosted by weather... I remember someone saying they didn't, but I can't remember who it was and thus, I don't know if I should believe them. :) If, by some odd fluke, I actually catch a Pineco that doesn't SUCK (and happens to be 13/13/15/15 ^_^) then Bug Power would be a great asset on my team, which currently has a potential Exeggutor problem. Heh heh. With STAB, though, Forretress could become an actual fighter instead of just a kamikaze bomb (though it still has Spikes and Explosion, don't worry about that ^_^). Starmie's Light Screen will help it with this.

Either way, it's still a 2-hit KO against Exeggutor, and a very likely 2-hit KO against Celebi. But it'd have other applications as well.
~Uiru- yes, my team has changed already from what I've posted. Sigh. :)

They get STAB, and I'm fairly certain weather affects them as well...
*Notes that this should be in the research Lab

I'm quite sure that they do get STAB. I'm pretty sure that Meowth346 said they do. And as you know, if Meowth346 says they do, then they do!

Virus - I bred a pineco with bug power. The DVs of the first one I bred were 13/13/14/7, which I guess is good enough.

I gave it this moveset:

Spikes
Explosion
Curse
HP - bug
@quick claw

It works better than the standard, I've found. He makes an okay attack platform, his weakness is gone once their fire type is toast.

Wow. Not five minutes after I decide "It'd be nice to have a Bug Power" I pull out a 15/13/9/1/13. SCORE! 65, 70, same thing. I'm not complaining.

And it's confirmed they get STAB? This makes me very, very happy. *dances*

I know I'm using Bug Power, Spikes and Explosion. Curse is brilliant, too, though it might get tricky if a 4x strong to Bug appears. I'm still considering Toxic or Sandstorm. Heh.

Now, time to slaughter Blissey! You know the times are a'changin' when you get a huge tip from GameFAQs... ^_~
