Effects

Storm Throw deals damage and always results in a critical hit, increasing its power to 90.

However, Pokemon with the abilities Battle Armor or Shell Armor, or those under the effect of Lucky Chant are immune to critical hits so Storm Throw will hit them with base power 60.

Changes

In Generation 5, Storm Throw has base power 40. Critical hits also increase power by 2× rather than 1.5× so the effective power is 80 with the critical hit.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Fightinium Z and uses its Z-Power, Storm Throw turns into All-Out Pummeling and has base power 120.
