Effects

Steamroller deals damage and has a 30% chance of causing the target to flinch (if the target has not yet moved).

Pokémon with the ability Inner Focus or those behind a Substitute cannot be made to flinch.

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

Changes

In Generation 5 accuracy is not bypassed against a Minimize user.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Buginium Z and uses its Z-Power, Steamroller turns into Savage Spin-Out and has base power 120.
