Crush Grip (Japanese: にぎりつぶす Grip Crush) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Regigigas.



Generation IV

Crush Grip deals damage. Its power varies between 1 and 121, and is greater the more HP the target has:

Power = 1 + 120 × (Target's Current HP / Target's Maximum HP)

Generation V onward

Crush Grip's power is now calculated as:

Power = 120 × (Target's Current HP / Target's Maximum HP)

However, its power cannot be less than 1. Consequently, its power now varies between 1 and 120.
