Deals damage. Lowers the user's Defense by one stage 100% of the time, and lowers Special Defense by one stage if and only if Defense is attempted to be lowered by the effect of this move.
Close Combat is possibly the most lauded Fighting-type move in the game, and undoubtedly one of the best offensive moves out there, since it has a very high 120 Base Power, a fairly inconsequential side effect, and provides the amazing Fighting-type coverage. It does lower both of the user's defensive stats by one stage, but most users of it are frail anyway, as well as fast.
Hi Jump Kick is a stronger alternative that will inflict heavy recoil should the user miss.
Superpower is an alternative with 120 Base Power, but lowers the user's Attack and Defense by one stage.
Brick Break is an alternative with 75 Base Power that can also destroy Reflect and Light Screen.
