First Impression (Japanese: であいがしら Head-on Collision) is a damage-dealing Bug-type move introduced in Generation VII. Prior to Generation VIII, it was the signature move of Golisopod.

Effect

First Impression inflicts damage. It has a priority of +2, so it is used even before other increased priority moves.

First Impression always fails if it is used after the first turn the user is out.
