(Japanese: ヒートスタンプ Heat Stamp) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Tepig and its evolutionary line.


Heat Stamp does damage in base depending on the weight of both the user and the target; when the user is heavier than the target, more damage is inflicted. The damage can be calculated in this form:

  • 120 base power, if target's weight is lower or equal to ⅕ (20%) of user's weight.
  • 100 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅕ (20%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ¼ (25%) of user's weight.
  • 80 base power, if target's weight is greater than ¼ (25%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight.
  • 60 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ½ of user's weight (50%).
  • 40 base power, if target's weight is greater than ½ (50%) of user's weight.

Since Tepig, Chaoboo, Enbuoh will always have constant weights, we can find out which weight classes will receive how much base damage.

For species Enbuoh as example:

  • 120 Base: Target must be lower than 66.14lbs.
  • 100 Base: Target must be 66.14lbs - 82.7lbs.
  • 80 Base: Target must be 82.7lbs - 110.1lbs.
  • 60 Base: Target must be 110.1lbs - 165.4lbs.
  • 40 Base: Target must be higher than 165.4lbs.
