Jump Kick (move)
| Jump Kick|
Jump Kick does damage. If it misses, the user will take crash damage of 1 HP. If used against a Ghost-type, it always counts as a miss.
In this generation only, if the user of Jump Kick attacks first and faints itself due to crash damage, the opponent will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.
Generations II and III
Jump Kick's base power is increased from 85 to 100, and its PP is reduced from 25 to 10. The crash damage is now equal to half of the user's max HP, rounded down.
