Darkest Lariat (Japanese: DDラリアット DD Lariat) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Incineroar. It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Malicious Moonsault by Incineroar holding Incinium Z.



Darkest Lariat inflicts damage, ignoring any changes to the target's Defense and evasion stat stages. It does not ignore changes to stats that do not use stat stages, such as Reflect, Abilities such as Sand Veil, or items such as Eviolite. It also does not ignore changes to the user's Attack or accuracy.


Games Description
The user swings both arms and hits the target. The target's stat changes don't affect this attack's damage.
