Which Stat?

It says it will download based on the foe's lowest stat. Does that mean the attack corresponding to the lower defense is raised? It seems that way, but it's not entirely clear to me from the description. Cheesus Is Lord 04:33, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

I also wondered this. TTEchidna 04:47, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
Download raises Attack or Sp Attack based on weather the foe's Defense or Sp Defense stat is lower. For instance, against Blissy, Download always boosts Attack, and against Golem it will aways boost Sp Attack. So you are correct, it raises an offensive state based on which of the opponent's defensive stats is lower. Trainer-c 07:12, 18 March 2008 (UTC)
What if they're both the same? - unsigned comment from TorchicBlaziken (talkcontribs)

Triple Battles

It doesn't say how the raised stat is determined in Triple Battles. Presumably it's the same way, but can someone confirm that? The same should probably done for Horde Battles. And maybe Rotational Battles. --Wynd Fox 23:27, 24 January 2014 (UTC)


If this is the signature ability of Porygon's line, why can Genesect have this ability? I'm curious. Hello, it's me, GalarChamp Cinderace! (talk) 16:31, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

It was, prior to Generation V. An article pretty clearly says so at the very start. Until Genesect was released, an ability was indeed exclusive to Porygon's line. So can't see any contradiction here. TLN (talk) 16:39, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
