Dynamic Punch & Zap Cannon

These move's additional effect (with 100% probability) aren't really boosted by Serene Grace. Are they avoided by Shield Dust?- unsigned comment from Bbbbbbbbba (talkcontribs)


As mentioned in Status ailments, the "Freeze" condition is always inflicted as the added effect of an attack -- therefore, Pokémon with Shield Dust cannot be frozen because their ability blocks added effects. But what if the opponent has Mold Breaker or a similar ability? (It also appears that Mummy can negate Shield Dust...) --Stratelier 23:09, 26 November 2010 (UTC)


Does this mean that any moves used by someone with Shield Dust will not have a side-effect? I'm pretty sure this can't be true, as I often get poisoned by Weedle's Poison Sting. Tk3141 15:20, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Moves used on a Pokemon with Shield Dust will not have a secondary effect. So, if you used like Fake Out on the Weedle, it wouldn't flinch.--It's Funktastic~! 15:28, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
