From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Belch (Japanese: ゲップ Belch) is a damage-dealing Poison-type move introduced in Generation VI.
Belch deals damage, but it cannot be selected unless the user has previously eaten a Berry in the current battle (whether its own, or another's via Bug Bite, Pluck or other Pokémon's Fling), but only if the user gains an effect from the Berry (for example, eating a Payapa Berry via Bug Bite will not allow Belch to be used). Eating a Berry that does not have an in-battle effect (such as the Razz Berry or Pomeg Berry) does not allow the Pokémon to use Belch. Consuming a Berry through other means (such as Natural Gift, using Fling, or its Trainer giving it a Berry from the Bag) will not enable Belch to be used.
After eating a Berry, the player may use Belch for the rest of the battle, even if the Pokémon has been switched out and back in or the Berry is restored with Recycle, Harvest, or Pickup.
|| The user lets out a damaging belch on the target. The user must eat a Berry to use this move.
- Belch is tied with Gunk Shot for the highest base power of all Poison-type moves at 120. However, Venoshock, another Poison-type move, has a power of 130 when the target is poisoned.
- Belch has the highest base power of all Poison-type moves in the Special move category.
