Basically, what I want to know, is that will Encore still allow Sleep Talk/Metronome to select other moves or will the user of Sleep Talk/Metronome be forced to use Struggle? A game test would be nice. :[
I'll look that up and/or test it. I'm fairly certain, though, that Sleep Talk would allow the use of the other three moves. A good example would be Metronome, in this case. Once Encored, you're locked into the move last execcuted. Since the purpose of Sleep Talk is to use one of the three moves, it'll still perform by doing so while Encored; I'm 85% sure. :p

Now I has question:

I took my Ref Quiz and PM'd it to Mike, but I need to know something before I take my Ref Test. When you roll a die, for either accuracy, paralysis, side effects, or whatever, how do you tell by the number displayed? Example would be rolling for Meteor Mash since it has 85 acc, and then "49" is rolled. Does it hit or miss? And can someone link me to the thread regarding rolls? Thanks.

If "49" is rolled, then it hits. Similarly, for OHKO moves, their acc is 30%, so rolls between 1-30 is said to be "hit", 31 and above is said to be a "miss". (I clarified this with -Adam-, just in case) Also, I don't think we have any threads here regarding to rolls. Its all based on your knowledge on Pokemon Moves(how they work/their effects), plus the code they use for rolling on AIM. Feel free to post your queries here though. I'm sure one of the Refs would clarify for you.

Is Thunder's accuracy 50% in Sandstorm? It's 50% in Sun, but what about Sandstorm. Serebii says it is 50%, but Smogon doesn't say anything. Jr told me it's 70% even in Sand, but I'd still like someone else to confirm.

Yeah, I know Smogon's the one to trust, but still :x

I honestly think Smogon would've put that Thunder has 50% accuracy in Sandstorm if it was true since Sandstorm is huge in the OU metagame and Thunder is used a lot in Ubers. =o

Tyranitar and Hippowdown a crap in Ubers, with Kyogre on every other team.

Smogon mentions the Acc drop in Sun, but not a Sandstorm one. Bulbapedia also doesn't mention any Acc change in Sandstorm, and mentions it in sun. I don't think there is any Acc change on Thunder in sandstorm.

Even though it's extremely old, Pokemon Stadium 2's Academy did mentioned that Sandstorm decreased Thunder's Accuracy. Then again, it also said that Sunny Day prevented Freeze and doubled the changes of burn while Rain dance doubled the chances of Freeze and prevented burn. That doesn't seem to apply at all now.

So, at least I can safely say that Thunder's accuracy USED to be 50% in Sandstorm on older games. Not sure if it's still like that.

Sandstorm and Rain Dance decreasing Solarbeam's power is mentioned on that game and it still seems to be like that though.

Thanks for the lesson, but that's not what I was not what I wanted to point out.

I'm saying since Sandstorm is so big in OU (due to Hippowdon and T-Tar) and Thunder is so big in Ubers (Kyogre) that they'd want to put all information possible about these moves down so people would know about them.

Does Magic Guard prevent confusion smacking dmg?

and

If something like Slowbro confuses its enemy then skill swaps the Ability Own Tempo to the enemy, does the enemy remain confused?

No, the enemy would be cured of its confusion @ second question.

Yes, Magic Guard prevents any secondary damage (anything not from attacks), except Struggle's recoil.

The same as Water Veil being given to something that is BRN'd, Magma Armor and FRZ, Limber and PAR, and Insomnia and SLP.

Actually, confusion damage is an attack on itself, not a secondary damage, so Magic Guard doesn't prevent it.

Um... @_@

Since we have a little disagreement, could sources be provided? Or someone like Mikey confirm which?

Smogon says nothing about preventing confusion damage with Magic Guard @ first question
