Gyro Ball (Japanese: ジャイロボール Gyro Ball) is a damage-dealing Steel-type move introduced in Generation IV. It has been TM74 since Generation IV.

Effect

Gyro Ball inflicts more damage the slower the user is compared to the target. Therefore, the larger the relative difference between the user's and target's Speed stat, the greater the damage. The base power is calculated by the following formula:

Base Power = 25 × (Target's Current Speed / User's Current Speed)

The maximum base power that can be reached with Gyro Ball is 150.

Generation VI

Gyro Ball does no damage to opponents with Bulletproof.
