Chip Away (Japanese: なしくずし Little by Little) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.


Chip Away inflicts damage, ignoring any changes to the target's Defense and evasion stat stages. It does not ignore changes to stats that do not use stat stages, such as Reflect, Abilities such as Sand Veil, or items such as Eviolite. It also does not ignore changes to the user's Attack or accuracy.

BWB2W2 Looking for an opening, the user strikes continually. The target's stat changes don't affect this attack's damage.
XYORAS Looking for an opening, the user strikes consistently. The target's stat changes don't affect this attack's damage.
