Flying Press (Japanese: フライングプレス Flying Press) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation VI. In Pokémon X and Y and Generation VII, it is the signature move of Hawlucha.



Generation VI

Flying Press deals damage. In this generation, it has a power of 80.

Despite being a Fighting-type move, the damage dealt is actually a combination of Fighting and Flying types, and thus its effectiveness against a given Pokémon differs from other Fighting-type moves. However, for all other purposes, it is a Fighting-type move: only Fighting-type Pokémon can receive the same-type attack bonus on Flying Press, it is unaffected by items like the Sky Plate and Flying Gem, and it will not activate the target's Coba Berry.

If Flying Press is used while under the effect of Electrify or Normalize, damage is calculated using Flying type and Electric or Normal type modifiers instead.

If the target has used Minimize, Flying Press deals double its regular damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Flying Press can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.

It cannot be used while Gravity is in effect.

Generation VII

Flying Press now has a power of 100.
