Self-inflicted Confusion

I was just wondering if this ability will prevent a pokemon from becoming confused when it uses Petal Dance (or a variation of it). ^_^ Delspencerdeltorro 18:25, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Of course. That's why Spinda learns Thrash.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 18:28, 12 March 2011 (UTC)


If an opposing Pokémon uses Swagger, I assume that a Pokémon with Own Tempo will not get confused; however, will it still receive an attack increase? --- unsigned comment from Tk3141 (talkcontribs)

Yeah, it will. I remember something like that happening in game. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 00:03, 17 February 2012 (UTC)


The USUM Rockruff that evolves into Dusk Lycanroc I believed is separated from Keen Eye/Vital Spirit/Steadfast Rockruff as it's coded as a separate Pokemon (much like Battle Bond Greninja). Should it be mentioned on the table as its own separate entry (noted as Special Rockruff) without a second or hidden ability rather than it be on a table beneath it? Thanks.

That is the eventual goal, yes, but the template we use on this page does not currently accommodate such a usage, so the current state of the page was the best alternative in the meantime while we wait for staff to fix the template. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 22:57, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
