Will this make moves such as Thunder or Blizzard give STAB? For example, a Delcatty with the Normalize ability could potentially have STAB bonuses from Thunder, Blizzard, Solarbeam, and Shadow Ball? I know that wouldn't be a good moveset, it's just an example, but still. All four, despite being different types of attacks, would all receive a 1.5x bonus? Crenel 23:56, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
- My guess is yes, since they count as Normal-type moves; Hidden Power can get STAB for, say, a Fire-type Pokémon if it's a Fire-type Hidden Power, so why wouldn't a Normalized Thunder or Blizzard? Diachronos 17:18, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
All moves - even in double battle?
If I use Normalize Delcatty in a double battle, and pair it with Dusknoir, will moves at the Dusknoir be normalized and have no effect? If so, I can get a free Trick Room and then several Shadow Sneaks or Shadow Punches or Toxic or Will-O-Wisp, while Delcatty Protects and Substitutes. It that possible? --Bbbbbbbbba 15:11, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
- It only applies to the Pokémon with the ability Normalize. Besides, can you be clearer on what you mean? Are you using the aforesaid moves on Delcatty? ht14 15:22, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, it sounds like a Skitty would become a useless against a ghost-type, unable to fight back but able to take damage from any non-ghost moves it knows. The advantage I see is that for example if you fought a ground-type with Thunder it would still be able to hit. --☯ *Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* ☯ 18:28, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
