Jump Kick (move)
- Not to be confused with High Jump Kick.
In Generations I-III, if the user of Jump Kick attacks first and faints itself due to crash damage, the opponent will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round.
The crash damage is now 1/8 of the damage it would have dealt. The user will take crash damage if Jump Kick is protected against by a move such as Protect, but not due to type immunity (only the type immunity message is displayed).
The crash damage is now 1/2 of the damage it would have dealt.
The user can now crash due to type immunity, and will take crash damage equal to half of the target's max HP in that case.
The user will not take crash damage if Jump Kick fails due to there being no remaining targets.
Generations V to VII
Jump Kick's base power is increased from 85 to 100, and its PP is reduced from 25 to 10. The crash damage is now (always) equal to half of the user's max HP, rounded down.
Generation VIII onwards
Jump Kick cannot be selected in a battle.

Jump Kick deals damage. If the move misses the target, the user receives recoil damage. In the Rescue Team and Explorers series, recoil damage is equal to ½ of the damage that would have otherwise been dealt. From Gates to Infinity onwards, the recoil damage is equal to 25% of the user's max HP.
