In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In the Rescue Team, Explorers and Adventure Squad series, Rock Smash is a non-damaging move which turns a wall tile in front of the user into a floor tile, even if there is a Pokémon inside it. It is incapable of destroying walls used for locked chambers as well as those at the edge of a floor, nor can it be used diagonally. The move was unaffected by Taunt prior to the Explorers series.

From Gates to Infinity onwards, Rock Smash is now a damaging move that may lower target's Defense. It retains its ability to remove wall tiles.

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Rock Smash is Charizard's Side Special move. Unlike in the Pokémon games, Charizard will create a boulder and crush it with its head, producing multiple fragments of debris that fly off for extra damage. Rock Smash has high damage and knockback and can potentially KO a foe at low damage.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Rock Smash has been made Charizard's Down Special move, with Flare Blitz taking its former position. It was weakened greatly, but now also grants armor to protect Charizard from incoming attacks.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Rock Smash was removed from Charizard's moveset in favor of Pokémon Change, as Charizard has been reincorporated back into the Pokémon Trainer character.

Trivia

  • Rock Smash is the only HM move that does not share its type with another HM move, past or present.
  • Rock Smash is the only move to be a TM, become an HM, revert to being a TM again, and then revert to an HM.
  • Rock Smash and Rock Climb are the only moves that have the word rock in their name, but are not Rock-type.
    • Coincidentally, both have been HM moves at some point.
  • Although Rock Smash is a Fighting-type move, it uses the Rock-type TM icon in the Generation V games.
  • Although Rock Smash is described as a "punch", it is not empowered by the Ability Iron Fist.
