Talk:List of moves that cause flinching
Is it really 9.8% chance of flinching instead of straight-up 10%? I thought that was just for Gen I, since the whole accuracy/chance of doing a status was set to 255/256... --TTEchidna 16:34, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Can somebody confirm that King's Rock has no effect on Bite? Judging from my experiences, it would seem that it does have an effect on it, but I suppose it might just be luck. --Thembi 00:53, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
- Why wouldn't it? TTEchidna 01:07, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
- According to this page, it doesn't.--Thembi 11:16, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Additional chance of inflicting flinch with King's Rock
This article states there's a 30% increase in the chance of causing flinching if the user of a move is holding King's Rock or Razor Fang. (Well, an increase of 30% of the chance of not causing flinching...) Evolution-inducing held item#King's Rock says the chance is 11.7%. Which one is right? Looce 07:06, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Gen V update?
Is there is a p + (1 - p) * 0.1 chance of causing flinching?
- Well my testing has proved this is false. King's Rock doesn't affect any flinching moves with the exception of Secret Power. --V4Victini (talk) 13:35, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
- Well, it is universally accepted to be correct. Looking into it, Spading#Flinchax talks a bit about items increasing the chance of flinching. From what I can see the formula is the flinching caused by the move, as long as it isn't zero, combined with the chance of flinching with the King's Rock. I think that the Smogon was the original source for this information. Hope that helps. --Super goku (talk) 19:18, 31 October 2012 (UTC)
