Setting Up Claydol Crest set

Hi !

I tested some weeks ago the Claydol Crest, but it looks like increasing Defense does not increase the damage Claydol does. 

If I'm correct, it would use Calm Mind to be more aggressive, wouldn't I ?

uhhh I remember its Sp. Atk using Sp. Def (which makes sense given it's its best stat) but looks like either the description or the actual item got changed. Either way, according to the wiki, Defense stat boosts do not modify Special Attack, while Special Attack boosts still apply.

The Crest makes Sp. Atk scale off Def instead. In V12, this included in-battle Def boosts in the calculation, making Cosmic Power OP on it, but it seems that as of V13 it no longer takes in-battle Def buffs into account when calculating. In-battle Sp. Atk buffs still apply though, and will increase Claydol's attack power. Since Calm Mind boosts Sp. Atk, it would indeed work for an aggressive set.

The Crest now uses the raw defense stat. So if your stat is 290 before any boosts that will be the sp attack stat too.
