Low Kick (Japanese: けたぐり Kick Down) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I that deals varying damage. Prior to Pokémon Yellow, it was the signature move of the Machop evolution line.

Effect

Generation I

Low Kick has a power of 50 and has a 29.7% chance of causing the target to flinch.

Low Kick can't make a target with a Substitute flinch.

Generation II

Same as before, but with a 30% chance of flinching instead.

Generation III and on

Low Kick doesn't have a standard power; rather, it inflicts greater damage on a heavier target. Low Kick's power is calculated as follows (note that GameFreak used weight in kilograms for all the cutoffs):

Target's Weight (metric) (US customary) Power
0.1 - 10 kg 0.1 - 22 lb
20
10.1 - 25 kg 22.1 - 55.1 lb
40
25.1 - 50 kg 55.2 - 110.2 lb
60
50.1 - 100 kg 110.3 - 220.5 lb
80
100.1 - 200 kg 220.6 - 440.9 lb
100
200.1 kg or more 441 lb or more
120


It has also lost its ability to cause flinching.

Mystery Dungeon

Low Kick has fixed base power, but the damage is multiplied by a factor based on the Pokédex weight of the Pokémon.

Target's Weight Multiplier
Less than 20kg, Starly, Victreebel 153/256 (60%)
20kg - 29.9kg (except Starly) 179/256 (70%)
30kg - 39.9kg 204/256 (80%)
40kg - 49.9kg (except Victreebel) 230/256 (90%)
50kg - 59.9kg 256/256 (100%)
60kg - 69.9kg 281/256 (110%)
70kg - 79.9kg 307/256 (120%)
80kg - 199kg 332/256 (130%)
200kg or more 358/256 (140%)
