Is it ok if I add this to the 'Tricks and Tips' topic on the first page? I don't think many beginners would need to understand natures, just people focusing on their IVs and this is really useful^^ x

Maybe an explanation of the stats is in order. Explaining these will leave beginners with less confusion when a "super effective" attack deals almost no damage or when a move only manages to hit half the time.

I've added an explanation of the stats as spoiler.

STAB moves

Same-type attack bonus, abbreviated STAB, is a 50% damage boost of an attack when it is the same type as one of the types of the Pokémon using the attack. This results in a 50% increase in damage (100% if the Pokémon has the Adaptability Ability).
Same-type attack bonus does not apply to moves that do not use the normal damage formula, such as Seismic Toss and Night Shade.

Example of attack bonus
A Squirtle using Water Gun increases the power of the move by 50%, from 40 to 60, since both Squirtle and Water Gun are Water-type. However, a Squirtle using Tackle does not receive an increase in power of the move, since Squirtle is not a Normal-type Pokémon.

Do you mind if I add these to the front pages? I might sort them a bit different though since this might be a bit advanced for a total beginner (the STAB moves anyway) so some might end up on the 'Tricks, Tips...' first page?
