Explosion

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal 250 100% 5 0 Physical All others

Description

Deals damage, but the user faints after its use. If the target uses Protect, is a Ghost-type, or the move misses, then the move will deal no damage, but the user will faint regardless.

Competitive Use

As this move no longer halves the Defense of the opponent and consequently deals much less damage, Explosion is much less competitively viable in BW. Therefore, Pokemon such as Heatran, Azelf, and Metagross are better off using their STAB and coverage moves.

Related Moves

Selfdestruct is a weaker version of Explosion that is also Normal-type.

Final Gambit only faints the user if the move hits, and its damage is dependent on how much HP the user has left.
