Brick Break (Japanese: かわらわり Tile Break) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation III. It has been TM31 since Generation III.

Contents

Effect

Generation III

Brick Break removes Light Screen and Reflect from the opponent's side of the field if it targets an opponent, then inflicts damage. Even if it targets an ally, it will not remove Light Screen or Reflect. It will remove Light Screen and Reflect even if the target is immune to Brick Break (i.e. a Ghost-type Pokémon). It will not remove Light Screen or Reflect if Brick Break misses or the target is protected from Brick Break.

Brick Break can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point the move Focus Energy was used in the prior turn.

Generation IV

Brick Break now removes Light Screen and Reflect from the target's side of the field even if the target is an ally.

Generation V onward

Brick Break no longer removes Light Screen and Reflect if the target is immune to Brick Break.

Brick Break can also remove Aurora Veil.
