Grass Knot (Japanese: くさむすび Grass Rope) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation IV that deals varying damage. It shares the same mechanic as the move Low Kick. It has been TM86 since Generation IV.


Grass Knot doesn't have a standard base power; rather, its damage is calculated based on the weight of the target. Grass Knot's power is calculated as follows (note that the game uses weight in kilograms instead of pounds for all the cutoffs).

Target's Weight (metric) (imperial) Power
0.1 - 9.9 kg 0.1 - 21.8 lb
10.0 - 24.9 kg 21.9 - 54.9 lb
25.0 - 49.9 kg 55.1 - 110.0 lb
50.0 - 99.9 kg 110.2 - 220.2 lb
100.0 - 199.9 kg 220.4 - 440.7 lb
200.0 kg or more 440.9 lb or more
