8.2 Berserk Ability fix completed

Ticket description:
There's one small bug with the Berserk ability:

- "Berserk will not activate if the Pokémon's HP falls below half by a move affected by Sheer Force." A Sheer Force Damanitan used Bite on Drampa and I still got the spatk boost when I'm not supposed to.

I was able to recreate the bug and can confirm that berserk is not working as it does in the games.

Hi there! I'm currently working through older tickets, and upon re-testing this issue, I can confirm it is still present in the current version of 8.3.6.

My method:
1) Gave myself a Drampa with the Berserk ability.
2) Gave my opponent NPC a Sheer Force Darmanitan, with various moves found on this bulbapedia list: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki ... nal_effect. The moves on this list would be affected by Sheer Force - increased damage, but ignoring any possible secondary status inflictions. (I mainly tested Bite, Bubbles, Aurora Beam, Acid, and Acid Spray.)
3) Each move that lowered Drampa to less than half HP proc'd Berserk, which is improper. As all of those moves were affected by Sheer Force, Berserk should not have become active, according to bulbapedia: "Berserk will not activate if the Pokémon's HP falls below half by a move affected by Sheer Force."(https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki ... k_(Ability) )

As such, I will move this issue to internal. Thank you!
