Effects

Wring Out inflicts more damage when the opponent's HP is higher. At full HP its base power is 120 and it decreases in proportion - i.e. the power is:

120 × CurrentHP ÷ MaxHP

Wring Out is a Special-category counterpart move to Crush Grip. It is also similar to Water Spout and Eruption, based on the opponent rather than the user.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Wring Out turns into Breakneck Blitz and has base power 190.
