A very appealing move, but after using this move, the user is more easily startled.

Thrash (Japanese: あばれる Violent Struggle) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Thrash inflicts damage for 3-4 turns, has a base power of 90, and 20 PP. PP is deducted only on the turn Thrash is first called. Once called, even if the move misses, the user will only be able to use Thrash, and will not be able to switch out. After Thrash is finished, the user becomes confused.

If the Thrash 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 Thrash is fully executed, without its duration being disrupted. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Thrash.

In Stadium, after the duration of Thrash ends, there will be a notice that the user becomes confused for some time.

Generations II to IV

The duration of Thrash is decreased to 2-3 turns.

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.

Thrash can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if Rage was used in the prior turn.

Generation V onwards

The base power of Thrash is increased to 120 and its PP is reduced to 10.

It is disrupted if it is not successful due to missing, sleeping, paralysis, freeze, flinching, a Protecting target, Ghost-type, or Wonder Guard immunity. If a disruption occurs on what would have been the final, confusion-inducing turn of Thrash, the user will still become confused.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, as well as in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, Thrash has 18 base power, 12PP and 78% accuracy. The user attacks three times facing in random directions (possibly attacking in the same direction more than once), hitting whatever Pokémon is in front of the user at the time, be it ally or enemy. If the Pokémon gets moved in middle of execution, for example from Vital Throw, it will continue attacking from its new position.

From Gates to Infinity onwards, it deals damage on the target for two or three times consecutively, then the user becomes confused, just like what it does in the core series games.
