Hi Jump Kick (Japanese: とびひざげり Jumping Knee Kick) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I. In Generation I, this move was the signature move of Hitmonlee.

Effect

Generation I

Hi Jump Kick does damage with a Base Power of 85; however, if the attack misses, the user will crash and take damage (1/8 of the damage it would've otherwise dealt). Used against a Template:Type2, it always counts as a miss.

If the user of Hi Jump Kick attacks first and faints itself due to crash damage, the target will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.

The user loses 1 HP for crashed damage.

Generation II-III

If used against a Template:Type2, user does not take crash damage.

Generation IV

Same as before, but its base power was increased from 85 to 100. The user also takes crash damage if hitting a Ghost-type Pokémon.
