From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Body Press (Japanese: ボディプレス Body Press) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is TR99 in Generation VIII.
Body Press inflicts damage, but it uses the user's Defense stat instead of its Attack stat to calculate damage.
Defense stat stage-modifiers are applied (rather than Attack stage-modifiers), but otherwise Attack modifiers are used (including held item, Ability, and burn). For example, Huge Power or a held Choice Band will increase the stat used in calculation, whereas Fur Coat or a held Eviolite will not.
||The user attacks by slamming its body into the target. The higher the user's Defense, the more damage it can inflict on the target.
