Slight clarification

I feel like I'm missing something (perhaps this is stated somewhere else on the Wiki) but does Intimidate lower Attack by one stage or two? Blink 18:29, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Attack is reduced once. So 1.5×. 486TESH377TALK378FUN379 18:33, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Anything More?

For some reason, I just got this crazy sensation to add more info to the page. I really wanna put something on the page! What should I write?! Can I even add anything more, or is the page completely nice and filled with enough info?! So? PLEASE ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!--DRAGONBEASTX 21:35, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

If you really want to add more, then find some info yourself...--The Kkllnnator サンタクロース 21:37, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Intimidate vs. Trace

Does anyone have information on how Intimidate works vs. Trace in the different games? I know for a fact that in XD, if the computer sends out Gyarados against my Trace Gardevoir, the Gyarados's Attack is lowered by the Traced Intimidate. However, in Leaf Green, the very same Gardevoir Traces Lance's Gyarados's Intimidate, but it does not affect the Gyarados. This indicates to me that the order of operations is different--in XD it counts as the beginning of the battle, and in LG it doesn't.

Do we know anything about how it works in other games? --Honiberri 06:31, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Non-adjacent Pokémon

According to this video, it does not affect them. I mean, only twice all three Pokémon were affected by Intimidate of the Pokémon which had Intimidate, while the other four times only two were affected. Marked +-+-+ 09:48, 16 October 2011 (UTC)


The header says Generation IV onward, but SOS battles and Adrenaline Orbs were only added in Gen VII. Is this an overlook? AmoongussForLife (talk) 20:43, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

No, that's a standard convention for Ability/move/etc. articles. We won't make a new section just to say how it interacts with a new mechanic/thing. New sections are made only if existing interactions change between generations; the only reason why Intimidate has a "Generation III" and "Generation IV onward" sections is because what happens when you gain Intimidate mid-battle is different in Generations III and IV+.--Den Zen 21:06, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
