Heat Crash (Japanese: ヒートスタンプ Heat Stamp) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Tepig and its evolutionary line.


Heat Crash does damage in base depending on the weight of both the user and the target; when the user is heavier than the target, more damage is inflicted. The damage can be calculated in this form:

  • 120 base power, if target's weight is lower or equal to ⅕ (20%) of user's weight.
  • 100 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅕ (20%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ¼ (25%) of user's weight.
  • 80 base power, if target's weight is greater than ¼ (25%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight.
  • 60 base power, if target's weight is greater than ⅓ (33.3%) of user's weight and lower or equal to ½ of user's weight (50%).
  • 40 base power, if target's weight is greater than ½ (50%) of user's weight.

Since Tepig, Pignite, and Emboar will always have constant weights, one can find out which weight classes will receive how much base damage.

For the species Emboar as an example:

Target's Weight Power
0 - 30kg (0 - 66.14lb) 120
30 - 37.5kg (66.14 - 82.7lb) 100
37.5 - 50kg (82.7 - 110.1lb) 80
50 - 75kg (110.1 - 165.4lb) 60
75kg or more (165.4lb or more) 40
