Selfdestruct (Japanese: じばく Selfdestruct) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Selfdestruct does damage, and causes the user to faint. Though its power is listed as 130, the target's Defense will be halved when damage from this attack is calculated, giving it an effective power of 260. The game will bump 0 up to 1 to avoid infinite damage, so Selfdestruct will then effectively have a power of 130 if used against a target with a defense value of 1.

If Selfdestruct breaks a target's Substitute, the user will not faint, though its image will be replaced by a blank image. Additionally, if the user of Selfdestruct had a Substitute at the time of such a situation, uses Substitute later, or switches out, its regular image will once again become visible.

If the user of Selfdestruct attacks first and faints itself, the target will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.

In Stadium, if Selfdestruct breaks an target's Substitute, the user will faint.

Generation II and on

Similar, but without glitches and with a power of 200 instead.
