Darkest Lariat (Japanese: DDラリアット DD Lariat) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation VII. Prior to Generation VIII, it was the signature move of Incineroar. It was TR93 in Generation VIII.

It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Malicious Moonsault by Incineroar holding Incinium Z.

Effect

Darkest Lariat inflicts damage, ignoring any changes to the target's Defense and evasion stat stages. It does not ignore changes to stats that do not use stat stages, such as Reflect, Abilities such as Sand Veil, or items such as Eviolite. It also does not ignore changes to the user's Attack or accuracy.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Darkest Lariat cannot be selected in a battle.

Generation IX

Darkest Lariat is programmed into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but cannot be selected in a battle as no available Pokémon can learn it. However, it can be called by Metronome.
