Rage (Japanese: いかり Rage) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. In Generation I, it was TM20.

Effect

Generation I

Rage deals damage and it will not be possible for the user to do anything other than let the user continue to use Rage, and it will not stop using Rage until it faints or the battle ends. Every time the user is damaged by an attack or is targeted by Disable (only if Disable misses or fails), its Attack stat will increase by one stage. Being hit by a multi-hit move will raise the user's Attack once for each hit. Rage will use 1 PP when selected, but not use any PP on any subsequent turns.

If Rage misses during the turn it is selected, its secondary effects will not activate. If Rage misses due to an accuracy or evasion check when its decision-removing effect is active, the accuracy of Rage will subsequently become 0.4%. The duration of Rage will be paused but not disrupted by anything, including sleep, freeze, partial trapping, flinching, or if the user hurts itself due to confusion.

Rage will not attempt to increase the user's Attack if it has reached a stage of +6, and will not successfully increase the user's Attack if it has reached a value of 999.

In Stadium, Disable will cause a Pokémon's rage to build if it is successful.

Generations II to IV

Rage is no longer a continuous move and will not last until the end of the battle. Instead, Rage must be selected every turn. The extra damage bonuses gained when the user of Rage is hit by an opponent are no longer Attack stat bonuses, but rather a separate counter used only for this move, with similar power increase. In addition to this, if Rage is not selected in consecutive turns or misses, all the damage bonuses gained through Rage will be lost. Furthermore, the accuracy-changing effects present in Generation I no longer apply, and missing does not change the accuracy of Rage.

Generation V

Same as the previous generations except extra damage bonuses gained when the user of Rage is hit by an opponent are once again Attack stat bonuses.

In other games

Mystery Dungeon series

In the Rescue Team and Explorers games, Rage does not deal damage. Instead, it gives the user the Enraged status, which boosts its Attack stat by one level every time it takes damage.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Rage does cause damage, and raises the user's Attack level by one whenever it takes damage.
