Activates When Dealt 10% of Max HP

Rocky Helmet's effect activates every time your Pokemon is dealt 10% of its maximum HP. It will still activate if the damage goes beyond 10%, but the damage dealt back to the opponent does not scale up.

Does Not Activate on the Final Hit

Rocky Damage Final Hit
Rocky Helmet will not deal damage to the Pokemon that deals the final hit prior to getting knocked down. This is true even if the attack was over 10% of you Pokemon's maximum HP.

Rocky Helmet Test

Damage Test

Rocky Helmet Damage Received

Damage Received Test

Rocky Helmet's effect activates 'when you receive a certain amount of damage'. During testing, it was confirmed that it does not activate when 421 damage was dealt against Snorlax with 4293 HP, but activates with 441 damage. From here, it can be said that the damage the description is referring to is around 10%.

In the image above, Lucario was only dealt 121 damage while having 7249 HP at level 15. That is only around 1.7% of its maximum HP.

According to the description of Rocky Helmet, the damage dealt to the enemy Pokemon is equivalent to 3/4/5% of its maximum HP. However, upon testing, it seems to vary depending on the level of the Pokemon using Rocky Helmet.

Changing Snorlax's Level
Machamp HP: 3809
→ 5% of HP = 190
Snorlax HP: 4605
→ 5% of HP = 230
Machamp HP: 3809
→ 5% of HP = 190
Snorlax HP: 4949
→ 5% of HP = 247

This test involves changing the level of Snorlax from 5 to 6, while Machamp remains at 5. If you depend on Machamp's HP, the damage caused by Rocky Helmet should not change. However, the test above shows that the damage increases as you raise the level of Snorlax.

Changing Machamp's Level
Machamp HP: 3809
→ 5% of HP = 190
Snorlax HP: 4949
→ 5% of HP = 2470
Machamp HP: 3940
→ 5% of HP = 197
Snorlax HP: 4949
→ 5% of HP = 247

For this test, we changed Machamp's level from 5 to 6, while Snorlax remains at 5. Since Machamp's HP increased it leveled up, the damage is likely to increase. However, the test above shows the damage has actually decreased!

As a result from the test, it seems that the amount of damage caused by Rocky Helmet is affected not only by the HP ratio of the opponent (3/4/5%), but also by the defense power of the opponent hit by Rocky Helmet.

Cooldown Test

Time and No. of Attack Did it Trigger?
1st Attack
2nd Attack
3rd Attack
4th Attack
5th Attack

The purpose of this test was to determine if Rocky Helmet has a cooldown, and how long it is. The test was conducted by continuously attacking the AI controlled Pokemon equipped with Rocky Helmet until it dies, assuring that the damage dealt satisfies the effect conditions, and note the time that the effect occured.

As a result of the test, it seems that the effect of Rocky Helmet has about a 3 second cooldown. However, this is only a speculation. It is not certain if this is true for every case. It is also not certain if the gap between attacks is solely caused by having a cooldown. Further testing and investigation are needed to be 100% sure.

      A bit late, but could I join? I’m relatively new to masters, but I play Snorlax, Eldegoss and Dragonite decently well. My trainer code is KTRH0GF and my discord is IDunno#2708 (y’know, just in case).
