Just curious because want to make a competitive team to battle with friends and I think Weavile + Iron Ball Fling seems good.

Maybe this has already been asked, but I don't see it.
Maybe not competitive. Just curious anyways

The power of Fling is determined by the user's held item. The move will fail if the user has no held item, or if the item is not one listed below.

To determine the base power of each item, check the list in the source

Hope I helped!

I stole this from Bulbapedia. Her's their table of fling base powers.

Fling isn't a very competitively good move. Especially considering it's one-time use, Weavile is designed to be fast, and Iron Ball would slow it down and make it susceptible to instant death, I wouldn't recommend it.

Just give it a focus sash.
flinging a focus sash for 10 base power?
Ya I know. Maybe not competitive, just having fun and making random drawings about a weavile throwing an iron ball
ight I forgot it already had an Iron Ball :V
As of SwSh, TR’s that are flung do damage equal to the Move’s Base Power, allowing you to get a 130 Base Power Fling from the Overheat TR. :P

The power of Fling is calculated as: a table that is difficult to copy-paste, so click the link if you want to see it.

Also you usually can't use fling more than once per battle. Knock off, night slash, or throat chop are almost always better.

Why don't you just do what I do and make a hidden post on imgur?
because that takes more effort
yeah two minutes with the snipping tool and a hidden post
