Status Effect

I am almost certain Tri Attack could not cause any status effects in Generation I. Can anyone refute? Schreiber 00:04, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Tri Attack on Limber

When the opponent is immune to one of the status ailments Tri Attack inflicts, what is the probability for Tri attack to inflict the other two?

Well I'm going to assume it would still be the same just with one of the status ailments excluded. If there were, hypothetically, 33% chance for all 3 and "a spinner" lands on the blocked status ailment it'll just be a normal attack. - unsigned comment from WhiteHat (talkcontribs)
That was what I always figured it would do? felinoel 23:51, 26 November 2010 (UTC)


I hate speculation, but I'm curious. In Gen IV, whenever I used Tri Attack, the animation for the "elemental balls" were different. What I mean is, any colored ball would appear randomly in the animation, iirc (making it the only move with different animations in the same game without external uses, such as Secret Power, trivia worthy?). Anyways, the first colored ball would indicate which status you would inflict if you were to inflict one, which needs confirmation. Sorry for the long paragraph, and this might not be clear, but help is appreciated. Blitzamirin 01:36, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
