Wood Hammer

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Grass 120 100% 15 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to 1/3 of the damage dealt, rounded half up, but not less than 1 HP.

Competitive Use

Wood Hammer, though limited to only a few Pokemon, is a useful move for Abomasnow, Torterra, and Sudowoodo. Wood Hammer stands as the strongest physical Grass-type attack and acts as a reliable STAB move for both Abomasnow and Torterra. It is notable on Abomasnow for being able to OHKO Tyranitar. If recoil is not of a concern, Wood Hammer is a fine choice for a STAB attack for the aforementioned two Pokemon.

Related Moves

Seed Bomb is a less powerful alternative, but it does not deal recoil damage to the user.
