Percentages

to clear up the percentage thing, i'm quite good at math so here goes:

The general percentage formula is (HPcurrent/HPmax) x 100 = Percentage

Now, let us assume that the pokemon with reversal has max 300hp, and uses reversal with only 1hp remaining. The formula would be:

(1/300) x 100 = 1/3 or 0.3 recurring

the game should round this to the nearest integer value, namely 0%

Generation V

Do we have to update this to list the Generation V Pokemon too? Speriend 23:28, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

New comments to the bottom please. And yes, this should be updated with the Gen V Pokémon. Werdnae (talk) 23:49, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, new here. Are we allowed to use other respected Pokemon sources for info?

Generation II breeding info doesn't add up

I may be missing something, but it doesn't look like a lot of the Pokémon listed under the breeding list for Generation II should be able to learn Reversal. Rhyhorn is listed as being able to learn it if bred with a Kangaskhan, but because Kangaskhan is always female, you can't breed one with a Rhyhorn or Rhydon and get a baby Rhyhorn, and Kangaskhan can't pass down the move. Most of the ones listed as being chain-bred in that generation (Pichu, Rattata, Mankey, Cyndaquil, Sentret and Houndour) are then impossible, because the only remaining options would be each other (and this also cancels the possibility of Miltank learning it, since her father would have to be one of those six or Rhyhorn). Rhyhorn's page mentions learning it from the male Nidoran line, which is more plausible, but their pages don't list the move at all. Is there a missing link that would have helped all of this make sense together?

Smeargle is in the Ground egg group. Also, There may be some that are actually impossible to get - these lists are often determined from in-game data, and IIRC there have been cases where it can't actually happen without hacking, but it's still programmed in.

Reversal with Explosion?

What happens if the opponent uses Explosin or Self-Destruct and you use Reversal? Does it hit the opponent (in double or triple battles)? What about if the Explosion user holds a Focus Sash or has Sturdy and uses it at full health? Jdrawer 15:56, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

I don't really know what you mean; Reversal works just like all the other damaging moves like Tackle and Water Gun. And the Pokémon still faints if it has Focus Sash Sturdy.--Den Zen 16:14, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
