From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Brick Break (Japanese: かわらわり Tile Break) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM31 from Generation III to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and TM13 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. It is TM43 in Generation VIII.
Brick Break removes Light Screen and Reflect from the opponent's side of the field (even if it targets an ally), then inflicts damage. It will remove Light Screen and Reflect even if the target is immune to Brick Break (i.e. a Ghost-type Pokémon). It will not remove Light Screen or Reflect if Brick Break misses or the target is protected from Brick Break.
Brick Break can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if the move Focus Energy was used in the prior turn.
Brick Break now removes Light Screen and Reflect from the target's side of the field, even if the target is an ally.
Generation V onward
Brick Break no longer removes Light Screen and Reflect if the target is immune to Brick Break.
Brick Break can also remove Aurora Veil.
