Last Resort (Japanese: とっておき The Best) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Generation IV

Last Resort inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. However, it cannot be used until all other moves that the user knows have been fully executed, at least once, during the battle. Moves are not considered to have been used if the Pokémon was switched out after using them.

This counter resets if the user switches out or faints. Last Resort will fail if it is the only move the user knows.

Generation V

Last Resort's power is increased from 130 to 140.
