Frustration (Japanese: やつあたり Angry Outburst) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM21 from Generation II to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Effect

Generations II to VII

Frustration inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. The base power of Frustration is dependent on the user's friendship. The lower the user's friendship is, the greater the base power of Frustration. The base power can be calculated using the following formula:

 

The power of Frustration varies between 1 (at the maximum friendship value of 255) and 102 (at the minimum friendship value of 0). The base power of Frustration is set to 1 if the formula outputs 0. If the user's friendship is 128 or more, Return is stronger than Frustration.

Generation VIII

Frustration cannot be selected in a battle.

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: new damage formula
You can discuss this on the talk page.

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Frustration is a move with 20PP and 100% accuracy. The user attacks enemy in front, dealing damage depending on the user's IQ. At 0IQ, it deals 45 damage. The damage is decreased by 5 after reaching 50 and 100IQ, and every 100IQ after that, until it deals 5 damage at 700IQ.

Although not possible under normal gameplay, IQ of 1000 or higher makes Frustration deal only 1 damage, while a negative value makes it behave like a one-hit knockout move.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, the move's PP has been decreased to 16.

In Gates to Infinity onwards, with the removal of the IQ system, damage now decreases the more dungeons the user was taken into.
