Guillotine (Japanese: ハサミギロチン Scissors Guillotine) is a very inaccurate Template:Type2 one-hit KO move introduced in Generation I.


Generation I

Guillotine does damage equal to the opponent's current HP. Guillotine will break a Substitute on contact, and can be countered for infinite damage on the turn it breaks a Substitute.

Guillotine will not affect an opponent whose current Speed is greater than the user's current Speed.

Generation II and on

Instead of being unable to affect a Pokémon with higher Speed, it will be unable to affect a Pokémon of a higher level.


Generation I

By leveling up

Generation II

Generation III
