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.
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.
