Darkest Lariat (Japanese: DDラリアット DD Lariat) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation VII. In Generation VII and Generation IX, it is 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.
