Brick Break (Japanese: かわらわり Tile Break) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation III. It has been TM31 since Generation III.
Generations III and IV
Brick Break removes Light Screen and Reflect and the effects they cause before inflicting damage. It will remove Light Screen and Reflect even if Brick Break misses or targets a Pokémon that is unaffected by the move.
Brick Break can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point the move Focus Energy was used in the prior turn.
Generation V onwards
Brick Break no longer removes Light Screen and Reflect if the target is unaffected by the move.
Brick Break can also remove Aurora Veil.
