Question on Two Turn Moves

Does anyone know what would happen if one were to use a two turn move such as Giga Impact and/or Hyper Beam with a Slaking or Slakoth? I know the first turn would consist of the attack, but would the second be resting or would the second be slacking off then the third be resting? Its an akward question I know, but I still haven't caught one in a swarm yet. If anyone has an answer great. XY 17:15, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

From what I remember, the recharge and slackoff take place in the same turn.
Note that Hyper Beam and Giga Impact, along with its variants, don't work the same as other two-turn moves. Something such as Razor Wind or SolarBeam would be charge, then slack, causing the attack to fizzle out. (Nevermind the fact that it can't actually learn Razor Wind...) --Shiningpikablu252 18:02, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks and they do take place in the same turn so maybe that should be added to the article. XY 17:51, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Gastro Acid?

What?! Worry Seed doesn't work?! Does Gastro Acid?? I'd test it myself, but I don't have a Pokémon with Gastro Acid. Can I be the one to edit the page when/if someone answers? ImperialCharizard 00:52, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
