Trump Card inflicts more damage when fewer PP are left, as per the table to the right. The power is calculated based on the PP remaining after the move has been used; this is to account for the ability Pressure which deducts 2 PP for each move.

If Trump Card is selected via a different move such as Metronome or Sleep Talk, it uses the PP of that move to determine the power.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Trump Card turns into Breakneck Blitz and has base power 160.
