Talk:Conversion 2 (move)
What happens if Conversion 2 is used after Curse? Recalcitrancy 03:07, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
Does anyone know if the pokémon gets STAB for the new type(s) or if it retains STAB for its original type(s)? White Phoenix 02:54, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
It says in the trivia that "The only legally unobtainable type is the Ghost-type", but is that true? I mean, theoretically, Conversion2 would change a Porygon's type to Ghost in order to resist the last attack, so if it was hit by a Bug attack for example, wouldn't it make it Ghost? (By the way, does it change the type to a type that resists it randomly? I mean, in order to resist Fire will it always change to Water or might also change to Fire or Rock?)--Cappuccino 16:08, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
- Yes, the type Conversion 2 chooses is chosen at random from any type that does less than 1× damage to the type of the last move. Hence, a Fire-type move could yield Fire, Water, or Rock, while a Ground-type move could yield Grass, Flying, or Bug. --Shiningpikablu252 16:16, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
- That actually confirms what I was talking about, right? I mean, the info in Trivia is wrong, isn't it?--Cappuccino 17:44, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
- No. —darklordtrom 02:16, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Will it fail?
I had my TOGEKISU use Metronome and Conversion 2 came out. It said it failed, though, when he was attacked by electric or ice type moves, they weren't super-effective on him! so I'm guessing it made him change to other type, MAYBE to only Normal, so that's why t said it failed (becausehe alread was normal type pokémon), but it did work... So (O.O) how does this work again? YukitoOoO 04:59, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
The changes to this move in gen V are kinda unclear as to what the difference is, from reading it I'm not sure how it's different. Does it still chose randomly from all the resisting and immune types? Does it no longer do immune? Is the difference that it will activate from any move now instead of the last offensive move? All of the above? we need a mit of clarity it doesn't seem very idiot proof what with me being an idiot and not fully understanding what it means. —Mada-sama (Talk to me!)— 05:24, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
- From what I understand, it changes its own type matchup only. So if Conversion 2 is used after a Dark type was used by the target, Porygon would be immune to Ghost, weak to Fighting and resist Dark type moves. Though I'm not sure about this at all, and would appreciate someone more certain to help out with this TintedLens 16:45, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
