Assurance (Japanese: ダメおし Make Sure) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Assurance inflicts damage and will deal double damage if the target has already received damage on the turn it is used.
All Pokémon in front of the user will be hit by Assurance. When the user hits a blown-back foe, Assurance does more damage.
