Punishment (Japanese: おしおき Punishment) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Generations IV to VII

Punishment deals damage. It normally has a base power of 60, but gains 20 power for every increased stat stage the target has, up to a maximum of 200 base power in total (i.e. capping at 7 positive stat stages). Stats decreased below normal do not affect this move's power.

For example, if the target has used Shell Smash once (which increases Attack, Special Attack, and Speed by two stages each; but decreases Defense and Special Defense by one stage each), it has a total of 6 increased stat stages, which causes Punishment to have a base power of 180. (The fact that Defense and Special Defense are lowered below normal has no effect on the base power.)

Generation VIII

Punishment cannot be selected in a battle.
