Heat Crash

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fire 1 100% 10 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage. The power of this move depends on (user's weight / target's weight), rounded down. Power is equal to 120 if the result is 5 or more, 100 if 4, 80 if 3, 60 if 2, and 40 if 1 or less.

N = (weight of target / weight of user) * 100 Base Power
N < 1/5 120
1/5 < N < 1/4 100
1/4 < N < 1/380
1/3 < N < 1/2 60
1/2 < N40

Competitive Use

Emboar is a heavy Pokemon, but it's not quite heavy enough to utilize this attack well. It's only hitting a few Pokemon for that full 120 Base Power, while in return, it's smacking a large number of Steel-types for pitiful damage. Stick with the far more consistent Flare Blitz.

Related Moves

Fire Punch is a more reliable alternative that generally obtains a higher average Base Power for lighter users.

Flare Blitz is a more reliable alternative that will always be equal to or greater than Heat Crash in strength, but deals recoil damage to the holder.

Heavy Slam is a Steel-type equivalent.
