Contents

Effect

Heavy Slam deals varying damage depending on the weight of both the user and the target. The heavier the user is in comparison to its target, the more damage will be inflicted. The base power varies as follows:

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

Trivia

  • The Pokémon with the highest potential base power for this move is Celesteela.
    • Only the 75 (including mega forms) heaviest Pokémon (less than 10% of all Pokémon) will not experience a 120 base power Heavy Slam from a Celesteela, due to the majority of Pokémon weighing less than 199.998 kg (20% of 999.99 kg).
  • With a weight of 21.8 lbs., Tepig is the lightest Pokémon that can have this move.
