Revenge (Japanese: リベンジ Revenge) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation III.


Generation III

Revenge deals damage, and if the user takes damage in the same turn, Revenge's power is doubled to 120. It has normal priority in this Generation.

Generation IV onwards

Revenge is now a decreased priority move, causing the user to attack after other Pokémon that are using ordinary priority moves. All other effects are the same.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Similar to Bide, the user will store energy for a few turns and then release the energy to inflict damage; the amount of damage equals the amount the user received during the "charging". The move will fail if the opposing Pokémon doesn't attack, if the user is under certain statuses like sleep or paralyze, or if the user faints.
