Talk:Stealth Rock (move)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Is anyone opposed to putting that this move is affected by Type match-ups? It may be a tad obvious but I don't think Spikes is (aside from immunities), and they're both similar moves. --ZellMurasame 01:05, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I say we should stick it in. After all, it is kinda special in that way. Tina δ 01:08, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, I was thinking that since this move is affected by type match-ups, does that include STAB? Can someone test this out? --ZellMurasame 02:08, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Nope, you don't get STAB from Stealth Rock. Tina δ 02:09, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Miltank

Miltank is listed as able to learn Stealth Rock on this page, but on Miltank's own page, it isn't. Would someone be able to clear up which it is? - unsigned comment from Timothy (talkcontribs)

It can. Someone f'd up when doing the TM thing. I'll add it on her page. TTEchidna 20:23, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Only non-level move?

I swear there were others. TTEchidna 19:15, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

there are. --Blastoise Rules!!! 19:21, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Multiple Spikes

Can you put 3 layers of Spikes AND 1 layer of STealth Rock? If you can, are there any pokémon that can learn both, as well as Roar/Whirlwind? - unsigned comment from Sk8torchic (talkcontribs)

Look it up... ht14 18:51, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Or, if you don't want to/can't find the answer, yes. You can lay 3 layers of spikes, 2 layers of Toxic Spikes, and one layer of Stealth Rock. And they can all be down simultaneously. As for learning all three, only Foretress, Omastar, and Smeargle learn all three, but only Smeargle gets Roar/Whirlwind. Oh, but Skarmory does get Whirlwind, Roar, Spikes, and Stealth Rock, but no Toxic Spikes. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 18:55, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, missingno master. Thouch, i din't ask about toxic spikes. Me and my fellow torchics agree on this - Sk8torchic. 23:57, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Charti Berry

Charti Berry "weakens a foe's super-effective Rock-type attack". Stealth Rock can be super-effective. Does that mean that, if I switch in a Pokemon that's weak to Rock when Stealth Rock is in play, Charti Berry will trigger? Or does it not count because Stealth Rock is a passive attack?
