From the Normal attacks page:
"Given a choice between the two, there is no disadvantage to Explosion. Note that no Normal Pokémon can learn Explosion. However, when the type-matching bonus is factored in, a Normal using Selfdestruct is more deadly than a non-Normal using Explosion."
Someone please explain.
MOVE - W/o STAB - W STAB
SD - 260 - 390
EXplosion - 340 - 510
I do not see how that is possible.

What they mean is that a Snorlax using Selfdestruct (318 AT; 390 pwr inc/ STAB) is more powerful than, say, a Golem using Explosion (318 AT; 340 pwr).

Non-Normals (how un-PC ^_^) don't get STAB on Explosion.

Oh, I read that wrong. I thought they were saying that a normal using self destruct does more damage than a normal using explosion.

HOW DARE YOU MISSTATE THE POWER ON THE DETONATION MOVES!

YOU WILL CALL THEM "ONE HUNDRED THIRTY" AND "ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY" AS A PROPER ROM HACKER SHOULD KNOW!

NOW DROP AND GIVE ME FIFTY...

...oh, never mind.

With the 07 subroutine, that's 100, after which you become irreversibly exhausted, and can't recover until some overconfident 11-year-old throws a 6"-wide sphere at you, which you somehow manage to fit into, and are taken to a nurse that somehow makes a living at a 24-7 job despite the inconvenient fact that she never gets paid.

Or maybe I just think too much...

I pay her. Every night. She makes good money and earns every penny.
