Trivia

  • The Ability Iron Fist, which boosts the power of punching moves by 20%, affects Meteor Mash. This is because the Japanese name of Meteor Mash is コメットパンチ Comet Punch (which was already taken by a Generation I move in English).
    • Despite this, no Pokémon with Iron Fist as an Ability can learn Meteor Mash. However, many Pokémon can still use this combination legally by using an Ability-copying move or Ability such as Skill Swap or Trace and using the move either naturally, or through moves such as Metronome or Mimic.
