Eruption does damage proportionately based on the user's HP. This move's base power reduces as the user's HP reduces and is calculated by the formula:
However, its power cannot be less than 1. Consequently, its power varies between 1 and 150.
Double Battle, Eruption will hit both opponents. In a Triple Battle, Eruption will only hit opposing adjacent Pokémon.
Eruption will also destroy
round rocks found in the background of battles.
Eruption can be used as part of a
Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if either the move Earthquake or Sunny Day was used in the prior turn.
