Really a variation of acid armor?
I mean, it also decreases the user's weight. -- (is Mæ!) 21:17, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
Now it is related to Iron Defense? Other than being Steel and affecting stats, they seem nothing alike. Shouldn't this be in its own category, especially since [to my knowledge] it is the only weight-lowering move? DwarfWoot 19:55, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
- Well, it's certainly more like Iron Defense than Acid Armor, PP considered. Keep in mind also that they don't affect stats in just any way, but raise one stat two stages. PLA 23:11, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

About the weight decrease...
What if, when this move is used, the user's weight is less than 100kg? Does it become 0kg or will it have a negative weight value? Also, it's not clear on this page and I'm not sure if it's defined elsewhere: how much can it decrease the Pokémon's weight by in total? I mean, does it do nothing after three uses of the move since (if the user's speed is unchanged to begin with) it can only be used three times to affect the user's speed because of the cap of +/-6 for any given stat and this move increases speed by 2 on each use? Or, does it only lighten the Pokémon on its first use and then just affect the speed afterward? Is there a cap on how much a Pokémon can change its weight by during a battle — like maybe +/-300, i.e., three uses of this move? I♥Togetic (talk) 06:18, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
