High Jump Kick (Japanese: とびひざげり Jumping Knee Kick), spelled Hi Jump Kick prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation III, it was one of Hitmonlee's signature moves.

Effect

Generation I

Hi Jump Kick does damage with a base power of 85. If it misses, the user will take crash damage of 1 HP. If used against a Ghost-type, it will always count as a miss.

In this generation only, if the user of Hi Jump Kick attacks first and faints itself due to crash damage, the target will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.

In Stadium, the crash damage is corrected to 1/8 of the potential damage.

Generation II-III

The crash damage is increased from 1 HP to half of the damage it would've dealt if it had hit. The user will receive crash damage if Hi Jump Kick is prevented by Protect or Detect.

In Stadium 2, the crash damage is adjusted to 1/8 of the potential damage.

Generation IV

Hi Jump Kick's base power is increased from from 85 to 100. It cannot be used if Gravity is in effect.

Generation V

Hi Jump Kick's base power is increased from 100 to 130, and its PP is reduced from 20 to 10. The crash damage is now equal to half of the user's max HP, rounded down.

Generation VI

If High Jump Kick is blocked by Mat Block, the user will receive the standard crash damage.
