Body Press (Japanese: ボディプレス Body Press) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It was TR99 in Generation VIII, and is TM089 in Generation IX.

Effect

Body Press inflicts damage, but it uses the user's Defense stat instead of its Attack stat to calculate damage.

Defense stat stage-modifiers are applied (rather than Attack stage-modifiers), but otherwise Attack modifiers are used (including held item, Ability, and burn). For example, Huge Power or a held Choice Band will increase the stat used in calculation, whereas Fur Coat or a held Eviolite will not. In contrast, Slow Start will decrease the stat used in calculation.

Description

SV The user attacks by slamming its body into the target. The higher the user's Defense stat, the greater the damage this move deals.
