Beat Up (Japanese: ふくろだたき Gang Up) is a damage-dealing Dark-type multi-strike move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation IV, it was the signature move of Sneasel, but other Pokémon could still inherit it via breeding. It was TM37 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Effect

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Is Beat Up boosted by the ability Technician? If so, does it affect just the user's initial strike or all strikes?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Generation II

Beat Up inflicts damage on the target from the user and from each conscious Pokémon in the user's party that does not have a non-volatile status. Each strike is typeless and has a base power of 10; damage is determined using each attacking Pokémon's base Attack and level and the target's base Defense. Beat Up ignores changes to stat levels such as Swords Dance. Same-type attack bonus is not considered when calculating damage. Each strike is preceded with the message "<name>'s Attack!", where <name> is the name of the Pokémon in the player's party.

Each strike has an independent chance of being a critical hit. King's Rock has its chance of activation based on the last strike alone.

Generations III and IV

If a Pokémon uses Beat Up on its partner in a Double Battle, the partner will attack itself (unless it suffers from a status ailment). If Beat Up activates a target's Focus Sash, no subsequent hits can knock it out. Beat Up ignores Wonder Guard, as it is considered a typeless attack. The Sniper Ability does not affect critical hits. Each strike has an independent chance of activating a King's Rock or Razor Fang.

Generation V onwards

Instead of using each party member's Attack stat, the user's Attack alone is used to calculate the damage of each strike. Because of this, Beat Up is now affected by boosts like from Swords Dance and Attack-boosting items like Choice Band. Furthermore, the base power per strike is no longer 10, but instead individually based on the Attack base stats of the party Pokémon:

 

Beat Up now receives STAB from Dark-type users and no longer deals typeless damage.

Beat Up no longer lists the individual attackers' names. Each strike will activate Justified, Weak Armor and Stamina. If a Focus Sash activates before the last strike is dealt, the following strike will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate repeatedly to prevent fainting, but each chance is independent. Sturdy will activate with each hit if the defending Pokémon has a maximum HP of 1. Each strike has an independent chance of activating Stench, but this does not stack with the Razor Fang or King's Rock.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Beat Up is a status move which warps all teammates on the floor to the user. In games prior to Super Mystery Dungeon, teammates are placed up to 2 tiles away from the user. Beat Up only works on teammates and will not affect clients visiting the player's team. The move will fail to warp a Pokémon if there is not enough space within the given area; the move considers only land tiles (even if the Pokémon can travel through non-standard tiles).

From Super Mystery Dungeon, the move targets an enemy in front, and will warp all teammates on the floor to surround the target.
