Heat Crash (Japanese: ヒートスタンプ Heat Stamp) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation V. It is the signature move of Tepig's evolutionary line.



Generation V

151Mew.png This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Power when target weights exactly 25% or 20% of the user's weight
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Heat Crash deals damage. Its power depends on the weight of both the user and the target; the lighter the target is in comparison to the user, the greater the power:

Target's relative weight Power
More than 50% 40
33.34% - 50% 60
25% - 33.33% 80
20% - 25% 100
20% or less 120

Generation VI onward

If the target has used Minimize, Heat Crash now 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.


Games Description
BWB2W2 The user slams its target with its flame-covered body. The more the user outweighs the target, the greater the damage.
