Thank you for your patience.

Opponent's attack

Options

I was having a match with someone who had the stage 2 Feraligatr pokemon and he used "Giant Wave" attack, which prevents that pokemon from attacking in the next turn. On his 7th turn he used "Giant Wave" and defeated my active pokemon and on he was able to use that attack again on the next turn (his 8th) and win the game because of it. I am wondering if there was something I over looked or if this is a bug? I'll attach the battle log here so you can see a detailed description of the battle. (The part in question is bolded and italicized near the bottom)

    you bossed his Palkia to the active. When a Pokémon switches to the bench it resets all conditions on that Pokémon.

    Does seem like a bug, wonder if it was caused by the Boss's Orders and the game reset the attack.

    @OKPlan_B That is why it happened, but that's not a bug. It's intended to work that way.

    The same thing just happened to me, I don't have the battle log because I just forfeited after that (I didn't know it skipped the after match screen), but I don't remember Feraligatr being benched, I could be wrong tho
