Super Fang (Japanese: いかりのまえば Hatred Fang) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation IV, it was one of the signature moves of Rattata and Raticate.

Effect

Generation I

Super Fang does damage equal to 50% of the target's current HP. It always deals at least 1 HP of damage.

It will hit Ghost-type Pokémon, even though the type has immunity to Normal-type moves.

Generation II onward

Super Fang no longer hits Ghost-type Pokémon.

Unlike in main series, it is unable to KO target that is at 1HP, and will instead fail to work. This move is affected by the Muzzled status condition.
