I'm just wondering why moves like Wake Up Slap and Hi Jump Kick are super effective against Pidgeot? Shouldn't they not be since he isn't weak to fighting? Does it have anything to do with the fact that I used Roost right before being hit?

I duno, I seem to think that they shouldn't be, but they just were and I can't figure out why. Tell it to me straight please.







I'm going crazy aren't I?

Well, I suppose it's confirmation that I'm still partially sane. Thanks.

wow, i am never teaching that move to any of my birds ever. it is way too dangerous.
what's evenb funnier about DPP is that they added moves AND items that can render Flying types useless.
Why would someone put an Iron Ball on their pokemon anyway?
or waht about the Lag tail? The only thing i cans ee from that usage is a team relying on a pokemon knowing avanlanche, Payback, Assuarance, and Revenge!

Roost is sometimes an advantage. It can actually take away weaknesses.

Yes, Roost is good on Lugia to remove Electric and Ice weaknesses for a turn. Helpful against Pokémon like Kyogre and Palkia. You'll want to carry Roost on Lugia because... well, Kyogre is so common in Uber play that it isn't even funny, and Kyogre always/almost always carries Thunder to abuse the rain that it brings automatically.
