From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Tar Shot (Japanese: タールショット Tar Shot) is a non-damaging Rock-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is one of the signature moves of Coalossal.
Tar Shot lowers the target's Speed stat by one stage. In addition, it doubles the effectiveness of Fire-type moves used on the target. Tar Shot will not double the effectiveness of Fire-type moves used on a target that is already under the effect of Tar Shot (but may still lower its Speed).
