Mighty Cleave (Japanese: パワフルエッジ Powerful Edge) is a damage-dealing Rock-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Iron Boulder.


Mighty Cleave inflicts damage. It bypasses the effects of Protect, Detect, Spiky Shield, King's Shield, Baneful Bunker, Silk Trap, and Burning Bulwark, but does not lift the effects of these moves.

If used by a Pokémon with Sharpness, its power is increased by 50%.


Games Description
SV The user wields the light that has accumulated atop its head to cleave the target. This move hits even if the target protects itself.
