Calm Mind

Calm Mind (PS) -- The user meditates, focusing itself on its special attacks, with a focus on special attacks of its main type(s). This gives its special attack power a slight boost, but unlike the game, there is no increase in general special defense. However, with a calm mind in place, the user is less prone to be controlled by telepathy or any attacks which effect the mind.

I've seen it reffed as "does only raise power of Special STAB attacks" and as "does raise the power of all Special attacks". Which one?

Edit - Also, UPN needs a QQ thread for things like this >.<

I'd say "raises the power of all special attacks, particularly those of its own type"

So if Tdos is right, and I order a normal type to CM, it only raises its Normal/XX special attacks?

It gets higher STAB, but that doesn't mean that the other special attacks won't be raised either.

Also been wondering about this move. It is like Focus Energy, where it can clear mind effects OR boost the user? Or is it both?

Berserk - ... the status is, in effect, the same as Confusion.

Confusion - ...Any attack that deals confusion must be modified by looking at the situation:

a) Was the victim in a high state of mental focus (Calm Mind, Meditate)

...

a Confuse Ray from a Crobat could hit a Calm Minded Alakazam and not confuse it.
Based on the above, I would say that it does have a similar effect as with Focus Energy + the special boost. At the very least, it sort of protects the user from being afflicted by those status techniques in addition to the buff.

Also, while there's no mention of this in its move description, the above also implies that Meditate has a similar effect.

Calm mind boosts all special attacks a little bit, providing a bigger boost to STAB moves.

Calm Mind makes a PokÚmon more resistant to becoming confused, but using Calm Mind is not a full cure for confusion in the vein of Focus Energy, though it can help somewhat.
