Effects

Wild Charge deals damage, but the user receives 14 of the damage it inflicted in recoil. In other words, if the attack does 100 HP damage to the opponent, the user will lose 25 HP.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Electrium Z and uses its Z-Power, Wild Charge turns into Gigavolt Havoc and has base power 175.
