A move of huge appeal, but using it prevents the user from taking further contest moves.

Final Gambit (Japanese: いのちがけ Life Risk) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

151Mew.png This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: What happens during Tera Raid Battles and Max Raid Battles?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Final Gambit causes the user to faint, and the target receives damage equal to the user's remaining HP before using Final Gambit.

If Final Gambit doesn't hit the opponent due to missing, type immunity, or protection, then Final Gambit will fail, and the user will not faint.

The move's side effect is not considered as inflicting damage to the user, and so if the user is holding a Focus Band, Focus Sash, or has Sturdy, it will not activate and the user will still faint. However, the move inflicts damage to the target, and so the target's Focus Band, Focus Sash, Sturdy, and/or Endure can still trigger if applicable, so that the target will be left with 1 HP.

If Final Gambit causes the target to faint, the user will faint before the target.
