Sucker Punch (Japanese: ふいうち Surprise Attack) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Sucker Punch does damage, and is an increased priority move. If the target does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, Sucker Punch will go first regardless of the user's or target's Speed. If the target also uses an increased priority move during the same round that the user uses Sucker Punch, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Sucker Punch is (or attempts to be) used, Sucker Punch's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.

If the target uses a non-damaging move or happens to act before the user, Sucker Punch will fail.

Generation V

Sucker Punch will now succeed if the opponent is using Me First.

Trivia

  • Despite its name, Sucker Punch is not a punching attack. The name is another term for a cheap shot at the expense of the opponent. Thus, many Pokémon that do not possess arms can learn this move, and its attack power is not boosted by Iron Fist.
  • It is tied with ExtremeSpeed for highest base move power of an increased priority attack.

In other languages

  • French: Coup Bas
  • Greek: Χτύπημα Εξαπάτησης.
  • Spanish: Golpe Bajo.
  • Italian: Sbigoattacco.
