Take Down

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal 90 85% 20 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to 1/4 of the damage dealt, rounded half up, but not less than 1 HP.

Competitive Use

Take Down has no competitive use. It is poorly distributed, has terrible accuracy, and is weaker than Return, which doesn't inflict recoil damage.

Related Moves

Return and Frustration are both more powerful alternatives that do not cause recoil damage.

Double-Edge is a much more powerful move, which also deals recoil damage.
