Does anyone know if the pokémon then gets STAB with the new type(s) or do they only get STAB for their original type(s)? White Phoenix 02:24, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
- A very old question, but I think it deserves an answer. STAB is determined by the user's current type, not the original type. So a Pokémon that changes type through any method (Conversion, Color Change, Camouflage, etc.) will gain STAB on moves of its current type, not original type. --SnorlaxMonster 09:21, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
What if Smeargle knows both Conversion and Curse?
- According to Smogon University, Curse is the only move that cannot be selected by Conversion. White Phoenix 23:59, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
What moves are recognised by Conversion?
What moves does conversion recognise? I know if a Pokemon has Worry Seed, it will turn into a Grass-type. However, I've tried using the weather moves (Rain Dance, etc), and conversion never selects them. So cloud it be that only moves that target the opponent that are selected?

I got curious about this question (and despite it being old, it hadn't been answered), so I decided to do a little testing in Black. As of Generation V, EVERY move, INCLUDING the now Ghost-Type Curse can be "targeted" by Conversion. I specifically tested Curse, Agility, Sunny Day and Trick Room. *goes to edit how it works in Generation V* RiverShock (talk) 16:01, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
