Low Kick and Variant Weight is in need of spading. See its section on the spading page for more information, and how you can help.
Low Kick now has 100% accuracy, and its power is now dependent on the weight of the target, inflicting greater damage on heavier targets. Its power is calculated as follows (note that the games use weight in kilograms instead of pounds for all the cutoffs):
0.1 - 9.9 kg
0.1 - 21.8 lbs.
10.0 - 24.9 kg
21.9 - 55.0 lbs.
25.0 - 49.9 kg
55.1 - 110.0 lbs.
50.0 - 99.9 kg
110.2 - 220.2 lbs.
100.0 - 199.9 kg
220.4 - 440.7 lbs.
200.0 kg or more
440.9 lbs. or more
Low Kick is no longer able to cause the target to flinch.
