Crush Grip (Japanese: にぎりつぶす Grip Crush) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Regigigas.


The power of Crush Grip varies between 1 and 121. The more HP the opponent has, the greater its power.

Its power is calculated by the following formula:

Power = 1 + 120 × (Opponent's Current HP / Opponent's Maximum HP)
