Helping Hand user fainting

Does the effect of Helping Hand still work if the Pokémon that used it is KO'd before it's team mate attacks? --Phred 21:47, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

I always wondered that myself. TTEchidna 22:16, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Does anyone know the answer to this? I came to this talk page to ask the exact same question. --SnorlaxMonster 14:49, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
Just tested in Emerald and the effect appears to stick even if HH's user faints before their ally can attack. Took me long enough to figure that out, since the CPU wasn't cooperating well with what I wanted, so if I double-check RuSa or FRLG, or test later generations, it'll be later.

Failure

In the Pokemon Emerald game I have, Helping Hand fails if the teammate Pokemon has used it first. Should this be documented? --Alex S. 00:09, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Damage raised by Helping Hand?

While it is known to us what Helping Hand is used for, does anyone know exactly how much it raises the affected partner Pokémon's attack by? -- HechEff 10:05, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Smogon says Base Power increases by 50%. — THE TROM — 10:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
How long or how many turns does the effect of Helping Hand last? --*Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* 19:59, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Additional effect?

i just used Helping Hand in a double battle while the target pokemon was asleep and it woke up before receiving the damage boost. i did no t use a priority move before you ask. is this intended or what?--The Truth aka Relicant 18:22, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Sounds like a coincidence, unless you think you can replicate it. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 20:27, 3/19/2014 (UTC)
