From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
First Impression (Japanese: であいがしら Head-on Collision) is a damage-dealing Bug-type move introduced in Generation VII. Prior to Generation VIII, it was the signature move of Golisopod.
First Impression inflicts damage. It has a priority of +2, and is used before moves of lower priority.
First Impression always fails if it is used after the first turn the user is out, or if the move is called by Instruct.
