Frustration (Japanese: やつあたり Angry Outburst) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It has been TM21 since Generation II.

Effect

Frustration inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. The base power of Frustration is dependant on the user's friendship. The lower the user's friendship is, the greater the base power of Frustration. The base power can be calculated using the following formula:

Power = (255 - Friendship) / 2.5

The power of Frustration varies between 1 (maximum friendship) and 102 (minimum friendship). The base power is set to 1 if the formula outputs 0. If the user's friendship is 128 or more, Return is stronger than Frustration.

Frustration does damage depending on the Pokémon's IQ. At no IQ, it does 45 damage. The damage is lowered by 5 after reaching 50 and 100 IQ, and every 100IQ after that, until it deals 5 damage. Although not possible under normal gameplay, IQ of 1000 or higher makes attack deal 1 damage, while negative IQ makes the attack instantly KO.
