  6.     SKY ATTACK
  7.  
  8.     -tested this with lv.100 moltres against those route 1 (101?) lv. 2-3 pkmn
  9.     Results: the exact 8 PP tries (hits/CHs): 7/1, 6/2, 8/0, 8/0, 5/1, 7/0, 6/0, 7/1, 6/0, 6/0, 7/0, 7/1, 6/0, 8/1, 7/0, 7/1 ->
  10.  
  11.     128 sky attacks
  12.     108 hits = 84,375% accuracy
  13.     8 CHs = 7,4% (8/108 ), but exactly 6,25% (8/128 ) out of all sky attacks, which is 1/16, the basic CH chance in the game
  14.  
  15.     -> sky attack does not have a high CH chance (but it should have a 30% flinch chance)

  21. anyway, I can retest this in D/P (caught a noctowl yesterday, what a coincidence)...I must say that the 30% flinch idea comes from a pokédex, as it was not possible for those low level targets to survive that one

  30. Sky Attack ingame description: "A second-turn attack move with a high critical-hit ratio. It may also make the target flinch."
  31. Sky Attack 1st turn message: "Noctowl became cloaked in a harsh light!"
  32.  
  33. 2/8 flinches, 0/8 CHs
  34. 2/8 flinches, 0/8 CHs
  35. 1/8 flinches, 2/8 CHs
  36. 2/8 flinches, 1/8 CHs
  37. 1/8 flinches, 0/8 CHs
  38. 1/6 flinches, 0/6 CHs, 2 missed
  39. 3/8 flinches, 0/8 CHs
  40. 2/6 flinches, 0/6 CHs
  41.

  43.  
  44. TOTAL:
  45. 14/60 flinches = 23.33%
  46. 3/60 CHs = 5%
  47.  
  48. -> flinch rate seems to be 25% (we can tell that for sure after king´s rock has been tested)
  49. -> although the description says so, sky attack doesn´t seem to have a high critical-hit ratio
