From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Pluck (Japanese: ついばむ Pick) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM88 in Generation IV to Generation V.
Pluck inflicts damage. If the target is holding a Berry, the user will eat the Berry and gain its effect. Pluck will not eat the Berry of a target that is behind a substitute. Pluck will not consume the Berry of a target that has the Ability Sticky Hold.
The effect of a Jaboca or Coba Berry will activate before the Berry can be stolen. Berries like Liechi or Sitrus Berries will be eaten by the attacker, regardless of them meeting their consumption requirement upon taking damage from Pluck.
Pluck can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.
