Another thing which I can't add because I'm using my mobile

X Special raised the Special stat in Generation I. posted by Flicky1991 12:42, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Japanese names?

So, X Attack is PlusPower, and X Defend is Defender. What's X Special, X Spec. Def, X Speed, Dire. Hit, and Guard Spec.'s Japanese names? I know that the Attack and Defend were easy because of the TCG using the Japanese names. But it can't be too hard for someone with the Japanese games to go and buy some from the Mart - say, Platinum players who can make a pit stop at Veilstone, perhaps?

To answer your question:
XSpecial: SpecialUP、スペシャルアップ
XSpec.Def: SpecialGuard、スペシャルガード
XSpeed: Speeder、スピーダー
Dire.Hit: YokuAtar、ヨクアタール (derived from "yoku ataru", translated to "hits accurately")
XAccuracy: CritiCutter、クリティカッター
GuardSpec.: EffectGuard、エフェクトガード

By how many stages?

I always thought it was just one stage that the stat was raised by, but somebody else told me it was two. This article just say it gets "raised". What is it, actually? Ztobor 03:15, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

It's definitely one stage. I just tested it, and it just said ". . . Attack rose" rather than ". . . Attack rose sharply", and I could also use four on the same Pokémon in the same battle without switching out. Since I didn't have seven of any of them, I tried again, this time using Rock Polish to increase a Geodude's speed to the maximum six level increase, and it wouldn't let me use an X Speed on it, confirming that if it had been two stages, I wouldn't have been able to use four on the same Pokémon. No stat-lowering moves were used in either battle. Werdnae (talk) 04:29, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
No, you need to raise it to five levels, not six. After raising it to six, you can't raise it by one stage either. Ztobor 17:16, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh, no, I see what you mean. Ztobor 17:22, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Item Call, Skill Call

What exactly do these do? Activate Berries and abilities like Swarm? - unsigned comment from Big Saturn (talkcontribs)

I assume Item Call is mostly for things like Berries, but I would assume that skill call would be more for things that actually trigger visibly, like the weather-making abilities, frisk, intimidate, synchronize (could be used on the next mon after the one that inflicted the condition was KO'd), etc. But I could be wrong.

Ideally we would have a list of which items/Abilities are triggered by them. --SnorlaxMonster 01:29, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

New Strangeness?

It seems theyve changed the way X items work, sort of. They actually open up the pokemon menu like using a potion, and you have to select who to give it to. If you select a pokemon that isnt out, the battle screen returns, says "Player used the X Attack! But its not where this item can be used!"

You lose your turn. You do not lose the item.

In Generation V, items can be used on Pokémon that cannot receive them. It just says the item fails. --SnorlaxMonster 13:25, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
