Payback (Japanese: しっぺがえし Retribution) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM66 from Generations IV to VII, and is TM57 in Generation VIII.

Effect

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Whether it matters which Pokémon's turn is used to use an item in a Double Battle in Generation IV.
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Generation IV

Payback inflicts damage. Its power doubles to 100 if the user moves after the target, if the target switches out, or if the opponent uses an item.

Generation V onwards

Payback's power no longer doubles if the target switches out.
