Grass Knot (Japanese: くさむすび Grass Knot) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation IV that deals varying damage. It shares the same mechanic as the move Low Kick. It is TM86 from Generation IV to Generation VII and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. It is TR77 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Effect

Grass Knot doesn't have a standard base power; rather, its damage is calculated based on the weight of the target. Grass Knot's power is calculated as follows (note that the game uses weight in kilograms instead of pounds for all the cutoffs).

Target's weight Power
metric US customary
0.1 - 9.9 kg 0.1 - 21.8 lbs.
20
10.0 - 24.9 kg 21.9 - 54.9 lbs.
40
25.0 - 49.9 kg 55.1 - 110.0 lbs.
60
50.0 - 99.9 kg 110.2 - 220.2 lbs.
80
100.0 - 199.9 kg 220.4 - 440.7 lbs.
100
200.0 kg or more 440.9 lbs. or more
120

Generation VIII

Grass Knot will fail if it is used on a Dynamaxed target.
