Punishment (Japanese: おしおき Punishment) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Punishment deals variable damage depending on the stats of the foe. Its damage is calculated by the following formula:

Base Power = 
60 + (20 × No. of stat increases), with a maximum base power of 200.

For example, if the target has used Bulk Up twice and Swords Dance once, there is a four-stage increase for the Attack stat and a two-stage increase in the Defense stat, making a total of six, which causes Punishment to have a base power of 180.
