Crush Grip (Japanese: にぎりつぶす Grip Crush) is a variably-damaging Normal-type move, introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Regigigas.


The base power of Crush Grip varies between 1 and 120. The more HP the opponent has, the more damage this move will do. Its damage is calculated by the following formula: Base Power = 120 × (Opponent's Current HP / Opponent's Maximum HP)


Games Description
The foe is crushed with great force. The attack is more powerful the more HP the foe has left.
