Yesterday i was training in a gym. my pokemon easily won the 3 first pokemon and fainted in the forth one, 3 times in a row. always my pokemon had different HP but slightly similar. but one time my pokemon fainted fighting the 2nd pokemon ... so i was wondering if are there Critical Hit attacks.

Yes, there are critical hits.

The critical strike rate depends on the attack itself.

See here:

    Items {
      TemplateId: "V0022_MOVE_MEGAHORN"
      Move {
        UniqueId: V0022_MOVE_MEGAHORN
        AnimationId: 5
        Type: POKEMON_TYPE_BUG
        Power: 55
        AccuracyChance: 1
   >    CriticalChance: 0.05
        StaminaLossScalar: 0.12
        TrainerLevelMin: 1
        TrainerLevelMax: 100
        VfxName: "megahorn"
        DurationMs: 3200
        DamageWindowStartMs: 2400
        DamageWindowEndMs: 2700
        EnergyDelta: -100
      }
    }

Or here:

    Items {
      TemplateId: "V0032_MOVE_STONE_EDGE"
      Move {
        UniqueId: V0032_MOVE_STONE_EDGE
        AnimationId: 5
        Type: POKEMON_TYPE_ROCK
        Power: 55
        AccuracyChance: 1
   >    CriticalChance: 0.5
        StaminaLossScalar: 0.1
        TrainerLevelMin: 1
        TrainerLevelMax: 100
        VfxName: "stone_edge"
        DurationMs: 3100
        DamageWindowStartMs: 1400
        DamageWindowEndMs: 1800
        EnergyDelta: -100
      }
    }
  • nice! and what about the percentage of added damage? – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 8:33
  • It may be 150% of the base damage – Phoke Jul 20 '16 at 8:54
  • @phoke, any solid source? – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 8:59
  • Haven't found evidence, but 50% extra damage seems legit, although all the other modifiers are 25%, so that would fit, too. – dly Jul 20 '16 at 9:04
  • @lois6b In the other "real" pokemon game (ie on 3DS, GB), all critical hit was 150% of the base damage. (Some move can have higher bonus because of their effect) – Phoke Jul 20 '16 at 9:10
