Trivia

  • In Pokémon Stadium 2, Bugsy erroneously refers to this move as "Megaphone" when his Heracross (present only in Round 2) uses it.
  • It has the highest base power of all Bug-type moves, though Fury Cutter could potentially have 160 power.
    • It is also the only Bug-type move with more than 100 base power (note above that Fury Cutter's power is 160 if used four times in a row).
