Take Down (Japanese: とっしん Charge) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. It was TM09 in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Take Down does damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to 25% of the damage done to the opponent.

If the user of Take Down attacks first and faints due to recoil damage, the opponent will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.

Self-inflicted recoil damage from Take Down from the previous turn can be countered if the opponent does not make a move on the following turn. If Take Down breaks a substitute, the user will take no recoil damage.

In Stadium, no recoil damage is taken if Take Down knocks out an opponent.

Generation II onwards

The user now receives recoil damage even if a substitute breaks.
