Trivia

I know, no trivia at this point in time, but this is just something for future reference. With Technician and STAB on a Scizor, Bullet Punch's power basically equates to 90 base power, potentially giving it the highest power of all +1 priority moves and/or Quick Attack variants.--Black Yin Zekrom 18:07, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Absol's Sucker Punch has 120 base power and its Attack stat is also 130.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 18:20, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Sucker Punch is situational; it only has priority (and only works) if the opponent attacks; I'm talking mainly about among Quick Attack variants. And I'm also not talking about Attack stats; just base power.

  • 40 x 1.5 (from Technician) = 60
  • 60 x 50% = 30
  • 60 + 30 (STAB) = 90.

Thus, highest base power among all Quick Attack variants in normal weather. --Black Yin Zekrom 19:17, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Breloom's Mach Punch is still as strong.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 19:22, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Well then, both Bullet Punch and Mach Punch can potentially have the highest power of all Quick Attack variants. Coincidentally, both of them involve punching.--Black Yin Zekrom 17:45, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Could it be noted that the Fighting type has the most Quick Attack varients? Buizel1991 00:12, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
