Talk:Beak Blast (move)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Let's dissect this move and how it works in odd cases. For example:

  • The charging phase of this move, at least, can be performed even if the user is asleep. Is this true across other impeding status conditions (paralysis, freeze, confusion, infatuation, Torment used during the same turn, etc.) ? (Hypothesis = yes)
  • Does the move thaw a frozen user and/or target before/upon striking? (Guess = at least user the user)
  • Can the move be copied by Me First? (hypothesis: no, same as Focus Punch)
  • What is the priority class of the charging phase?

Do you happen to know about Focus Punch? Does it charge when you're asleep etc.? (And if so, could you add it to its page?)
I would have assumed charging priority is Focus Punch's, but I think I've read somewhere it's just 0, and thought at that time that might be correct (I can't seem to find where that was, though). Nescientist (talk) 12:03, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

I can confirm that Beak Blast is not copied by Me First. I also remember Sucker Punch failing to execute when I selected Beak Blast. Sidnoea (talk) 02:23, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Beak Blast and Sky Drop

I just fought against a Braviary with Sky Drop using a Toucannon. I can confirm that on the charge turn Beak Blast will not burn the Sky Drop user, despite making contact. The move will fail if Beak Blast is used while being held by Sky Drop. This comes along with the usual mechanic of Sky Drop failing on an opposing Flying-type.

Are you sure Sky Drop makes contact the first turn? (If so, I'd say add it.) Nescientist (talk) 12:48, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
