From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Outrage (Japanese: げきりん Imperial Rage) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation III, it was the signature move of the Dratini evolutionary line.
Outrage inflicts damage for 2-3 turns. While the user is using Outrage, it cannot use any other attacks. PP is deducted only on the turn Outrage is called; it will not be deducted for the amount of turns Outrage is used before it is finished. After Outrage is finished, the user becomes confused.
If the Outrage duration is disrupted (such as by full paralysis or hurting itself due to
confusion), it will immediately end. The user will only become confused if Outrage is fully
executed, without its duration being disrupted. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Outrage.
Outrage has a base power of 90 in this generation.
The battle screen will now show a message box saying that the user became confused, and its target is a randomly selected enemy in Double Battles.
The base power of Outrage has been increased to 120.
Outrage's PP was reduced to 10 and it is disrupted if it is not successful due to missing, sleeping, paralysis, freeze, flinching, a Protecting target, or Wonder Guard immunity. If a disruption occurs on what would have been the final, confusion-inducing turn of Outrage, the user will always become confused.
Outrage will now also be disrupted if used on a Fairy-type Pokémon, which are immune to it.

The user will attack randomly one tile ratio away, the user will then become confused after pulling off the move.
Outrage has a power of ★★★★, has regular accuracy, and is a multi-strike move, hitting 2-3 times per use. Its target area is the four tiles directly adjacent to the user. If a Pokémon successfully executed Outrage during the previous turn, it will not be able to move (as if its Range is temporarily set to an unimprovable 0), but will be able to use moves. This penalty does not occur if Outrage has a move rank of +S, which is attained by the Pokémon sharing a 100% link with its partner Warrior, or if the move misses all of its targets. If Outrage misses a target, the multi-strike move will cease, regardless of any other targets that were hit.

- The Japanese name of Outrage, げきりん (逆鱗) Gekirin, can be translated to mean imperial wrath or the wrath of one's superior, and appears in the idiom 逆鱗に触れる gekirin ni fureru, which means to infuriate one's superior. The move's Dragon type is derived from the etymology of 逆鱗 gekirin (lit. reverse scale), as it usually refers to a dragon scale growing in the opposite direction, which will infuriate the dragon if touched.
