Rage Fist (move)
ふんどのこぶし Rage Fist
Rage Fist (Japanese: ふんどのこぶし Rage Fist) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Primeape and Annihilape.
Rage Fist inflicts damage. Its power increases by 50 each time the user was hit during a battle, by a move that causes direct damage (including times the user hit itself in confusion but excluding times the substitute was hit), up to a maximum of 350 (after 6 hits), with each strike from a multi-strike move counting as one hit. Switching out or fainting does not reset the hit counter.
A Primeape that has used Rage Fist at least 20 times evolves into Annihilape when leveled up. Rage Fist does not need to hit in order for the required evolutionary condition to be met. However, it will not be met if Rage Fist could not be executed because of paralysis, confusion, infatuation, flinching, or Disable.
