Hi Jump Kick
Deals damage. If the attack misses, the target uses Protect, or the target is a Ghost-type, then the user takes crash damage equal to 1/2 of its max HP, rounded down. This move cannot be used while Gravity is active. Pokemon with the ability Magic Guard are unaffected by crash damage.
Hi Jump Kick is absurdly powerful and highly accurate. However, it is a potent double-edged sword. If you suspect that the target will use Protect, or a Ghost will switch in, you must predict accordingly or take 50% HP in recoil. Most Pokemon that use this move are those without access to Close Combat, such as Scrafty, as Close Combat is safer and more reliable, with nearly the same Base Power.
Close Combat is a slightly weaker, though more reliable option.
Drain Punch is a much weaker option that heals the user.
