Effects

Gyro Ball inflicts varying damage: the slower the user compared to the opponent, the higher the damage, up to a maximum base power of 150. The base power is calculated as:

25 × TargetSpeed ÷ UserSpeed

For example, if the opponent is twice as fast as the user, Gyro Ball will have base power 50.
