Effects

5 ≤ r        120
4 ≤ r < 5100
3 ≤ r < 480
2 ≤ r < 360
r < 240

Heat Crash inflicts more damage the heavier the user compared to the opponent. The table shows the different base powers for each ratio, where r = UserWeight ÷ TargetWeight

For example, if the user's weight is at least 4 times more than the target but less than 5 times, Heat Crash hits with 100 base power.

If the target has used Minimize, Heat Crash ignores accuracy and deals double damage.

Changes

In Generation 5, the Minimize effect did not occur.

When a Pokémon is holding Firium Z and uses its Z-Power, Heat Crash turns into Inferno Overdrive and has base power 160.
