Electro Ball inflicts more damage the faster the user is compared to the opponent. The table shows the different base powers for each ratio, where r = UserSpeed ÷ TargetSpeed

For example, if the user's Speed is at least 3 times more than the target but less than 4 times, Electro Ball hits with 120 base power.
