Seismic Toss (Japanese: ちきゅうなげ Earth Throw) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Seismic Toss inflicts damage equal to the user's level. The damage is not altered by weakness or resistance, except when a Pokémon is immune. Seismic Toss doesn't receive STAB.

In Generation I, Seismic Toss hits Template:Type2 Pokémon, even though the type has immunity to Fighting-type moves. In subsequent generations, the type mechanics were corrected so that Ghost-type Pokémon correctly became immune to Seismic Toss.

In the anime

Pokémon

Geodude. Geodude grabs the opponent, rises into the air, and throws them to the ground.

Machop. Machop grabs the opponent and spins around in a circle. After a bit, Machop lets go and the opponent goes flying.

Primeape. Primeape grabs the foe's leg and head, then jumps up and throws them to the ground.

Charizard: Charizard grabs the foe, flies into the sky, spins around, zooms back down, and tosses its foe into the ground for more damage, using the momentum of the dive.
