Pokémon with Iron Fist
- Despite having its power increased by Iron Fist, Meteor Mash cannot be learned by any Pokémon who can naturally have this Ability.
- However, many Pokémon can still use Meteor Mash with the Ability Iron Fist by changing their Ability (such as with Skill Swap) or through moves such as Metronome and Mimic.
- To have Iron Fist and Dynamic Punch at the same time, Hitmonchan must learn Dynamic Punch from the Move Tutor in Pokémon Emerald then use an Ability Capsule in Generation VI.
- The power of Sucker Punch is not increased by Iron Fist, since it is called 「ふいうち」 Surprise Attack in Japanese.
