Superpower

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fighting 120 100% 5 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage. Lowers the user's Attack by one stage 100% of the time, and lowers Defense by one stage if and only if Attack is attempted to be lowered by the effect of this move.

Competitive Use

In a sea of competition from other high-powered Fighting-type moves, wide distribution is Superpower's saving grace; a large number of non-Fighting-type Pokemon receive Superpower as a tutor move and can make good use of it. Scizor's Choice Band set simply isn't complete without Superpower, which gives it a way to smash through enemies that resist Bug and Steel, such as Heatran. With only Heat Wave and Hidden Power to break through Steel-types otherwise, Honchkrow loves using Superpower to bust through walls without a second thought. Finally, for giggles, Contrary Spinda can use Superpower to boost its Attack and Defense to a nearly passable level.

Related Moves

Drain Punch is much less powerful, but heals the user.

Close Combat has the same power but lowers the user's Defense and Special Defense after use.

Hi Jump Kick is more powerful but causes recoil damage if it misses.
