I've had these questioning going around my head for ages so hopefully one of you guys can answer 'em. Ze questions: 1. Does STAB effect the base power of a given attack (ie. Surf's 95 base power) or does it multiple the Pokemon's actual Attack/Sp. Attack stat by 1.5? 2. When an attack like Growl says "Puts down the opponent's ATTACK by one level" does it mean the Pokemon's stat would go down from, say, Level 55 to 54 or something completely different? 3. By what % or amount do attacks like Double Team or Sand Attack change the Pokemon's stats? 4. Does Intimidate act the same way a Growl attack would? I think that's about it, for now.
