Razor Claw Tests

Damage Increase Cooldown Test

1 Second Interval
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 1 Second Interval (1)
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 1 Second Interval (2)
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 1 Second Interval (3)
2 Second Interval
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 2 Second Interval (1)
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 2 Second Interval (2)
Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - 2 Second Interval (3)

The purpose of this test is to determine Razor Claw's damage increase cooldown after an initial activation. The test was conducted by having a Pokemon use a move, then attack immediately to trigger the damage bonus effect. This process is repeated every second until the effect triggers again. The time between the two trigger event is the cooldown.

As a result of the test, it is found that Razor Claw's damage increase effect has a 2-second cooldown.

Works Great with Low-Cooldown Moves and Moves with Charges

Razor Claw - Cooldown Test - Zeraora.gif

Pokemon that have low-cooldown moves or moves with charges can benefit from Razor Claw's damage bonus effect each time they use a move. As an example, Zeraora can use each charge of Spark to trigger the damage bonus since there is enough time between leaps for the effect to cooldown.

Damage Increase Effect Duration Test

Razor Claw - Effect Duration Test - Start
Razor Claw - Effect Duration Test - 1 Second
Razor Claw - Effect Duration Test - 2 Seconds
Razor Claw - Effect Duration Test - 3 Seconds
Effect started at 9:40, and expired at 9:37. Effect duration is about 3 seconds

The purpose of this test was to determine how long Razor Claw's damage bonus effect lasts after using a move. The test was conducted by having a Pokemon use a move to trigger the effect, then wait until the effect icon in the lower-right corner disappears. The duration is the difference between the moment of activation and the moment the icon disappears.

As a result of the test, it is found that the damage increase effect lasts for about 3 seconds.

Damage Increase Test

Razor Claw - Damage Increase Test - ZeraoraZeraora (Level 15) Attack Stat: 664
Bonus Damage: 352
Increase: 89%
Razor Claw - Damage Increase Test - SnorlaxSnorlax (Level 15) Attack Stat: 360
Bonus Damage: 200
Increase: 80%
Razor Claw - Damage Increase Test - CramorantCramorant (Level 15) Attack Stat: 301
Bonus Damage: 170
Increase: 77%

The purpose of this test was to measure Razor Claw's damage increase based on the Pokemon's attack stat. The test was conducted by getting the percentage difference between the damage done via Razor Claw's effect and the Pokemon's attack stat at max level (Level 15) with no other held items equipped. The test used 3 Pokemon: (1) Zeraora (highest attack stat), (2) Snorlax (average attack stat), and (3) Cramorant (lowest attack stat).

As a result of the test, the damage increase varies with 89% being the highest, 80% being average, and 77% being the lowest.

Movement Speed Reduction Duration and Activation Test

Razor Claw - Movement Speed Reduction Test.gif

The purpose of this test was to determine how long the movement speed reduction lasts on the target once it takes effect. The test was conducted by ordering a Pokemon to attack Lilipup to inflict the movement speed reduction, then obverse how long before Lilipup move speed is normal again.

As a result of the test, it is found that it takes about 1 second after the hit for the slow to take effect, and the effect lasts for about 1 second. It is difficult to notice (from the image above) how much movement speed reduction the target received as well as how long it lasts.

Sp. Atk. Pokemon Test

The purpose of this test was to determine if Razor Claw's bonus damage and slow effects work if the bearer is an Sp. Atk. Pokemon.

As a result of the test, it's confirmed that Razor Claw's effects also work with Sp. Atk. Pokemon, particularly melee ones like Gengar or Mr. Mime.

Hello! Thank you for your comment. After testing, we found that Razor Claw's effects also work if it's used by an Sp. Atk. Pokemon. We've updated the page to include this interaction.

Does the bonus on basic attack still happen when Razor Claw is used by a sp. attack Pokémon?
