Pixelmon Mod - Bug tracker

Struggle causes different effects based on which type change ability is active fix completed

Ticket description:
In Pixelmon 8.1.2, Libero changes Cinderace to the Mystery type when he uses Struggle. However, Protean changes Greninja to the Normal type.

I lean towards Cinderace being the correct option, as a typeless move, but whichever is picked, both seem like they should result in the same type.

Thank you for your report, this will be moved up and they can decide which route to take the typing!

This is still in effect in 8.2

This is slightly different in current version.

Greninja's Protean is still Normal type for Struggle.
Cinderace's Libero is now "type.???"

Hi there, sorry for the long delay; we're currently clearing through old tickets, and upon testing for this issue, I can see Scorbunny's (and ect.) type still becomes "type.???" with Libero.

To test this, I simply gave myself a Scorbunny with Libero ability, and only Struggle as a move. Upon using Struggle on an enemy, "Scorbunny's Libero changed it into the type.???" is in the battle chat.

As such, I'll go ahead and move this to internal now. Thank you!

Just confirming that this bug was resolved for version 8.3.7 - it seems struggle always changes pokemon to the normal type now (however, struggle can still hit ghost types as intended).
