Could anyone tell me how sheer force works i was trying to figure it out last night. I know it increases a move by 30% if it has a secondary effect, but does that mean only a secondary effect that is against the opponent or a secondary effect that would effect your pokemon as well like, Reduces users speed by one stage or 30% chance to paralyze the opponent. If anyone could give me some guidance on this i would be greatful thanks smile
Recoil and self inflicted stat decrease and things like that are primary effects, not secondary, so no.
It would be way too good if it increased Super Power, Close Combat, Bravebird, while negating the balancer those moves have built in.
But as for things with a chance to Paralyze, drop an opponent's stat, etc, yes.
Also, with a Life Orb, you don't take Life Orb recoil from attacks boosted by Sheer Force.
