Smack Down (Japanese: うちおとす Knock Down) is a damage-dealing Rock-type move introduced in Generation V. It has been TM23 since Generation V.

Effect

Smack Down inflicts damage.

If the target is Flying-type, has the Ability Levitate, or is under the effect of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis, Smack Down applies its effect to that Pokémon, causing that target to become grounded (vulnerable to Ground-type moves, affected by terrain and Arena Trap) until that target switches out. Smack Down also removes the effects of Magnet Rise and Telekinesis. The effect of Smack Down is not applied if it hits the target's substitute or if the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of Sky Drop, holds an Iron Ball, or is under the effect of Gravity or Ingrain.

Magnet Rise fails if used by a Pokémon under the effect of Smack Down; the move Telekinesis cannot affect a Pokémon under the effect of Smack Down. The Air Balloon does not apply if the Pokémon is under the effect of Smack Down.

Smack Down can hit Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turns of Fly, Bounce, and Sky Drop. If it hits a Pokémon that is using Fly or Bounce, it will knock it down, cancelling the move; if it hits a Pokémon using or affected by Sky Drop, it will not be knocked down. A Pokémon under the effect of Smack Down can still use these moves on subsequent turns.

Smack Down can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if any of the moves Entrainment, Hold Hands or Play Nice was used in the prior turn.
