|PP||5 (max. 8)|
Stone Edge is a Physical Rock-type move that has an increased Critical-Hit Ratio.
A Critical Hit from Stone Edge will not only deal increased damage, but also bypass any negative stat boosts that could have reduced the damage.
Stone Edge is widely considered as the most powerful Rock-type attack, and it has become a staple for offensive Rock-type Pokémon since its introduction.
Despite having a relatively low accuracy of 80, its impressive 100 base power compensates for this drawback.
Additionally, its increased critical-hit ratio adds to the move’s overall usefulness.
A wide variety of Pokémon can learn Stone Edge for additional coverage in battles. This includes Rock-types of course), but also Ground- and Steel-types,
How Critical Hits Work
Each attack has a chance to land a Critical Hit, which increases the damage dealt by 50%. Additionally, Critical Hits ignore the attacker’s negative stat stages and the defender’s positive stat stages, making it extremely useful in battle.
Tip: Critical Hits can bypass the damage reduction from Reflect or Light Screen. However, Burn’s Attack reduction is still applied to the damage calculation even if the attack lands as a Critical Hit.
Critical Hit probability is calculated in stages, with each stage increasing the chances of landing one.
Most attacking moves will always begin at Stage 0, but high Critical-Hit Ratio moves like Stone Edge begin at Stage 1.
The stages and their chances of landing a Critical Hit are listed below:
|Stage||Chance of Critical Hit (Gen 6)|
|+3 and above||100%|
There are also several items, moves, and abilities that boost your moves’ Critical-Hit Ratio:
|Super Luck||Ability||Raises the Critical-Hit Ratio of the user’s moves by one stage.|
|Lansat Berry||Held Item||Raises the holder’s Critical-Hit Ratio by two stages when the holder’s HP falls below 25%|
|Razor Claw||Held Item||Raises the Critical-Hit Ratio of the holder’s moves by one stage.|
|Scope Lens||Held Item||Raises the Critical-Hit Ratio of the holder’s moves by one stage.|
|Focus Energy||Move||Raises the Critical-Hit Ratio of the user’s moves by two stages.|
