Outrage inflicts damage for 2-3 turns, has a base power of 90, and 15 PP. PP is deducted only on the turn Outrage is first called. While the user is using Outrage, it cannot use any other move. After Outrage is finished, the user becomes confused.
If the Outrage duration is disrupted (such as by full paralysis or hurting itself due to confusion), it will immediately end. The user will only become confused if Outrage is fully executed, without its duration being disrupted. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Outrage.
A message is now displayed when the user becomes confused due to fatigue.
In battles with multiple opponents, the user selects itself as the target, but hits an adjacent opponent that is selected at random upon each use of the move.
The base power of Outrage has been increased to 120.
Generation V onwards
Outrage's PP was reduced to 10 and it is disrupted if it is not successful due to missing, sleeping, paralysis, freeze, flinching, a Protecting target, or Wonder Guard immunity. If a disruption occurs on what would have been the final, confusion-inducing turn of Outrage, the user will always become confused.
Outrage will be disrupted if used on Fairy-type Pokémon, which are immune to it.
Table assumes the user is in the square marked by > facing to the right. Orange squares indicate spaces that are hit. Red squares indicate the knockback on hit Pokémon. A blue square indicates the user's position after performing the move.
Power = 41 | Accuracy = 100% | Effect = Attacks each target two to three times. The user's Range drops to an unimprovable 0 for the next turn. This effect does not apply if the move rank is +S or if the move misses all targets. If the move misses any target, the multi-strike move will cease.
Axew's eyes glow red and its body becomes outlined in a red aura as well. It then jumps up and continuously punches and kicks the opponent. After the attack is over, the aura disappears, but Axew's eyes continue to glow red, showing that it is confused.
Midnight Form Lycanroc's eyes glow red and a burst of light red energy comes from the ground and momentarily surrounds its body. It then repeatedly punches the opponent with one of its claws. After a while, it becomes confused.
The Japanese name of Outrage, げきりん (逆鱗) Gekirin, can be translated to mean imperial wrath or the wrath of one's superior, and appears in the idiom 逆鱗に触れる gekirin ni fureru, which means to infuriate one's superior. The move's Dragon type is derived from the etymology of 逆鱗 gekirin (lit. reverse scale), as it usually refers to a dragon scale growing in the opposite direction, which will infuriate the dragon if touched.
