0 votes

I think this is it:

A happiny with an attack lowering nature, 0 attack ivs, 0 attack EVs, soaked, -6 attack, max happiness using frustration against a mega aggron with +6 defense, full defense ivs, 252 defense EVs, and defense boosting nature.

it is: blaziken's blaze kick +6 attack vs. shedinja +6 defense
you mean -6? also, it's SE. also, Blaziken's attack is high.
Also, Shedinja's defense is low.
What are you even talking about?
Well shedinja only have 1 hp so it is still the lowest amount of damage

Technically the lowest amount of damage possible is 0, if you use Hold Back or False Swipe on a Pokemon with 1 HP remaining.

If the target has 1 HP remaining, False Swipe will hit and leave the target at 1 HP. - Bulbapedia

Excluding this however, the lowest amount of damage is going to be 1. There are so many possible ways this could happens that it'd be impossible to locate each and every one of them.

If you are asking a more debatable kind of question, like what would be the weakest attack realistically and not mathematically, it really depends on the person and what they believe is weak.

The answer is obvious and there are probably alot of matchups to achieve 1HP damage.
