Trivia

  • Despite the narrative implying the need for a tail to perform this attack, Pokémon that lose their tails when they evolve (such as Primeape) or do not have a tail but gain one upon evolution (such as Rhyhorn) can still learn and use this attack.
  • Iron Tail's description in-Bag as a TM differs from the descriptions on its user's attack listing, saying "The foe is slammed with a sturdy tail of steel." instead of "The foe is slammed with a steel-hard tail."
  • Iron Tail is one of the most commonly known moves in the anime.
