The question: How do the stats of an individual pokemon relate to its abilities' damage?
For example: Let's say i have a pokemon that has 110 Atk and 100 Sp Atk. He knows 2 attacks: 1 is a Physical Attack with 80 power, and 1 is a Special Attack with 90 power. How do i determine which would deal more damage in the end?
Is the damage calculated by:
- Adding the power to the stats (110 + 80 = 190, 100 + 90 = 190), meaning both attacks are equally powerful?
- Are the powers a % based off of the stats (110 * 0.8 = 88, 100 * 0.9 = 90), meaning the special attack is better?
- Some other way?
For the scope of the question, i would like to overlook things like damage boosting items, opponent's defense stats, STAB/Effectiveness, and other outside influences.
How does this work? And if too long, where can I read more about this?
