Effects

Wrap inflicts damage on the first turn then traps the opponent, causing them to lose 18 of their maximum HP after each turn, for 4-5 turns.

If the user holds a Grip Claw, the after-effects last for 7 turns. If a Binding Band is held, the damage is 16 of the target's maximum HP.

Changes

In Generations 1-4, Wrap has 85% accuracy. Its after-effects last for 2-5 turns instead of 4-5; holding Grip Claw they last for 5 turns.

In Generations 2-5, the target loses only 116 of their maximum HP after each turn, or 18 if a Binding Band is held.

In Generation 1, Wrap inflicts regular damage for 2-5 turns. While in effect, the target is unable to attack.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Wrap turns into Breakneck Blitz and has base power 100.
