Fling (Japanese: なげつける Throw) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM56 in Generations IV through VII, and is TM59 in Generation VIII.

Effect

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason:

The following items are missing, or the damage dealt is unknown: Max Honey, Wishing Chip, and Ingredients
You can discuss this on the talk page.

The power of Fling is determined by the user's held item. The move will fail if the user has no held item, or if the item is not one listed below. After using Fling, the item is consumed, even if the target has protected themselves with a move like Protect or Detect.

The power of Fling is calculated as:

Power Items
10 All Berries, all Incenses, all Mints, all Scarves, all Sweets, Air Balloon, Big Root, Bread, Bright Powder, Choice Band, Choice Scarf, Choice Specs, Destiny Knot, Discount Coupon, Electric Seed, Expert Belt, Focus Band, Focus Sash, Grassy Seed, Lagging Tail, Leftovers, Mental Herb, Metal Powder, Misty Seed, Muscle Band, Pink Nectar, Power Herb, Psychic Seed, Purple Nectar, Quick Powder, Reaper Cloth, Red Card, Red Nectar, Ring Target, Shed Shell, Silk Scarf, Silver Powder, Smooth Rock, Soft Sand, Soothe Bell, White Herb, Wide Lens, Wise Glasses, Yellow Nectar, Zoom Lens

Share, Fire Stone, Flame Orb, Float Stone, Fluffy Tail, Galarica Cuff, Galarica Twig, Galarica Wreath, Gold Bottle Cap, Heart Scale, Honey, Ice Stone, King's Rock, Lava Cookie, Leaf Stone, Life Orb, Light Ball, Light Clay, Lucky Egg, Luminous Moss, Lumiose Galette, Magnet, Max Mushrooms, Max Revive, Metal Coat, Metronome, Miracle Seed, Moon Stone, Mystic Water, Never-Melt Ice, Nugget, Old Gateau, Pass Orb, Pearl String, Pearl, Poké Doll, Poké Toy, Prism Scale, Protective Pads, Rare Candy, Razor Fang, Relic Band, Relic Copper, Relic Crown, Relic Gold, Relic Silver, Relic Statue, Relic Vase, Revive, Sacred Ash, Scope Lens, Shalour Sable, Shell Bell, Shoal Salt, Shoal Shell, Smoke Ball, Snowball, Soul Dew, Spell Tag, Star Piece, Strange Souvenir, Stardust, Sun Stone, Sweet Apple, Sweet Heart, Tart Apple, Thunder Stone, Tiny Mushroom, Toxic Orb, Throat Spray, Twisted Spoon, Upgrade, Water Stone
40 Eviolite, Icy Rock, Lucky Punch
50 All memories, Dubious Disc, Eject Pack, Sharp Beak, Wishing Piece
60 Adamant Orb, Damp Rock, Griseous Orb, Heat Rock, Leek, Lustrous Orb, Macho Brace, Rocky Helmet, Terrain Extender, Utility Umbrella
70 All Drives, Dragon Fang, Poison Barb, Power Anklet, Power Band, Power Belt, Power Bracer, Power Lens, Power Weight

90 All Plates, Deep Sea Tooth, Grip Claw, Thick Club
100 All Fossils, Hard Stone, Rare Bone, Room Service
130 Iron Ball

Black Glasses, Dread Plate, Muscle Band, and Choice Band boost the power of Fling. Expert Belt boosts the power of Fling if the attack is super effective. Life Orb boosts the power of Fling but does not reduce the user's HP.

If Fling hits the target with a Berry, that Berry will activate (even if its usual trigger condition is not satisfied). Additionally, some items have custom effects when used with Fling:

Item Effect Power
  Flame Orb Burns the target 30
  King's Rock Causes the target to flinch 30
  Light Ball Paralyzes the target 30
  Mental Herb Cures the effects of infatuation, Taunt, Encore, Torment, and Disable and Cursed Body* from the target 10
  Poison Barb Poisons the target 70
  Razor Fang Causes the target to flinch 30
  Toxic Orb Badly poisons the target 30
  White Herb Restores lowered stats of the target 10

Fling will fail if used by an Arceus holding a Plate, a Giratina holding the Griseous Orb, a Genesect holding a Drive, or a Silvally holding a memory. Fling will fail if used by a Pokémon holding a Mega Stone that allows it to Mega Evolve. It will also fail if the Pokémon is holding a TM, an Ability Capsule, a Festival Ticket, Red Orb or Blue Orb, Rusted Sword or Rusted Shield, or any type of Apricorn, Gem, Poké Ball, Mail, or Z-Crystal. Embargo, Klutz (from Generation V onward), Magic Room, and Unnerve (if the Pokémon is holding a Berry) all prevent the usage of Fling. In Generation IV only, if the target of Fling is under the effect of Embargo, the item's effect will not activate.

Fling can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if a certain move (Celebrate, Covet, Happy Hour, or Wish) was used in the prior turn.

If the user holds a TR, Fling's power is equal to the power of the move the TR contains, unless the move does not list a specific power (i.e. it is a status move or has variable power with no default power), in which case it has 10 power. TR71 (Leaf Storm) and TR43 (Overheat) match the Iron Ball in producing the maximum possible Fling power of 130.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Explorers of Time and Darkness, Fling is a non-damaging move with 16PP that ignores accuracy and evasion checks. The user sends the enemy in front flying to another tile in the room. If there's another hostile Pokémon in the range, the target will bounce off of it before landing, causing both of them take 10 damage.

In Explorers of Sky, the move is now affected by Taunt.

In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, using Fling opens the inventory and allows the leader to choose an item to fling (excluding held items). It only works when a visible enemy is within a fan-shaped area up to 10 tiles in front. Like Gravelerocks, the item will be flung in an arc, but otherwise has the same effect as when thrown normally. Partner Pokémon can use this move to fling their held item. Though Fling is listed as a status move, it is unaffected by Prankster.

Pokémon Rumble

Fling will deal damage but also throws coins.

Trivia

  • Fling, along with Fake Out, are the only moves that have a 100% chance of causing flinching, though a King's Rock or Razor Fang must be flung in order to cause flinching.
  • Fling will fail if the user is holding a Poké Ball of any kind. This is probably to prevent confusion should a flung Poké Ball hit a wild Pokémon and do damage rather than try to catch it.
  • Fling is the only Dark-type move able to cause paralysis, burn, or poisoning.
  • In the anime, Fling can also be used to throw the remains of attacks, such as when Bianca's Emboar flung the remains of Trip's Conkeldurr's Stone Edge at it. It can also be used to throw the opponent.
