From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Trump Card (Japanese: きりふだ Trump Card) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Trump Card doesn't have a standard power; rather, it inflicts greater damage when Trump Card's PP is lower. Trump Card's power is calculated as follows:
| Remaining PP
|| Base Power
When Trump Card is chosen by a random move generator such as Metronome or Assist, it will instead use the PP of that move with the same chart applying.
|| The fewer PP this move has, the more power it has for attack.
|| The fewer PP this move has, the greater its attack power.
