Iron Tail is a mostly accurate and very damaging Steel-type move introduced in Generation II.

In the anime

The tail of the Pokémon glows white and strikes the opponent; sometimes, the hit produces light. According to Chaz, only a Pokémon with a fully developed tail can learn this technique.

Sentret. Its entire tail does the move.

Flaaffy. The blue pearl in the tip of its tail does the move.

Steelix. The last three rocks of its tail do the move.

Marshtomp. Its two caudal fins hit the foe.

Grumpig. It's entire tail does the move.

Meowth. Its entire tail does the move.

Milotic. The bottom scales of its tail does the move.
