Hello, I've decided to report another issue which I've known for for quite a bit but was unsure if it was already worked on.
The issue would be some moves not healing/boosting the Volt Absorb user when bouncing off a Pokemon with the Magic Bounce ability.
(I didn't check if it was the same for Flash Fire + Will-o-Wisp, Sap Sipper + Leech Seed, Water Absorb + Soak and other combos bouncing off the Magic Bounce.)Here is how to reproduce the bug:
- Have 1 NPC use a Xatu that only knows a small attacking move
- Battle the NPC with a Lanturn that knows only Thunder Wave (don't forget the Volt Absorb ability)
- Spam Thunder Wave
- Watch how your HP gets lower and lower without healing each time you use Thunder Wave
Here is a replay of a showdown match I made to show you how this interaction is supposed to work:https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-1505118085-z58pnhtqki23n8wqtl28w8pn40vr6w2pw
This directly affects a lot of match-ups due to the huge presence of M-Sableye, M-Absol, M-Diancie and even Hatterene in competitive play.
Thanks for reading, have a nice day.
