Rock Wrecker (Japanese: がんせきほう Rock Cannon) is a damage-dealing Rock-type move introduced in Generation IV. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature move of Rhyperior.


Rock Wrecker inflicts damage and then forces the user to recharge during the next turn. Unless this attack misses, the user will always have to recharge.

Pokemon with the Bulletproof Ability are immune to Rock Wrecker.
