Return (Japanese: おんがえし Return Favor) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It has been TM27 since Generation II.

Effect

Return inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. The base power of Return is dependent on the friendship of the user. The greater the user's friendship, the greater the base power. The base power can be calculated using the following formula:

Base Power = Friendship / 2.5

The base power of Return varies between 0 (minimum friendship) and 102 (maximum friendship).

Trivia

  • In the Spanish version of the games, Return is called Retroceso, which is likely due to a direct translation of the word Return. A correct translation should be Retorno.
  • Lopunny is the only Pokémon that can learn Return by Leveling up, while its pre-evolution is the only Pokémon that can learn the variation of Return, Frustration, by leveling up.
