Final Gambit (Japanese: いのちがけ Life Risk) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V.


Final Gambit causes the user to faint, and the target receives damage equal to however much HP the user had before executing the move.

If Final Gambit doesn't hit the opponent due to missing, type immunity or Protect, then Final Gambit will fail and the user will not faint. Using this move will not activate the user's Focus Band, Focus Sash or Sturdy, and therefore, the Pokémon still faints regardless of whether the item is held or not. However, Final Gambit can trigger Focus Band, Focus Sash, and Sturdy if any are possessed by the target, and the target's Endure will prevent them from fainting.


Games Description
BWB2W2 The user risks everything to attack its target. The user faints but does damage equal to the user's HP.
