Effects

High Jump Kick deals damage, however, if it misses the user keeps going and crashes, losing 12 of its maximum HP. High Jump Kick cannot be used if Gravity is in effect.

Changes

  • In Generations 1-3, High Jump Kick has 85 base power.
  • In Generation 4, High Jump Kick has 100 base power.
  • In Generations 1-4, High Jump Kick has 20 PP.
  • In Generations 1-5, this move's name is formatted as Hi Jump Kick.
  • In Generation 1, the crash damage is always 1 HP. In Generation 2, the crash damage is 18 of the damage the attack would have inflicted, while in Generations 3-4 it is 12 of that potential damage.
  • In Generations 2-3, the user does not crash if High Jump Kick is used against a Ghost-type Pokémon. In Generation 4 it does crash, but since it would not deal damage the user takes damage equal to half of the target's maximum HP.
