The user cruelly slams the target's head into the ground and may stun or paralyze it. This move is Fighting and Dark type simultaneously.

Move Description

The user grabs the target, flips it over and slams its head into the ground with punishing force, potentially stunning or paralyzing it. This dangerous attack has both Fighting- and Dark-type characteristics.

Destroyer Driver is the signature move of Onzarudo, who needed a signature move to match Hawlucha's Flying Press. Onzarudo is based on a "bad guy" rudo or heel wrestler, so a nasty, paralyzing piledriver (a class of move largely illegal in lucha libre) seemed like it'd fit the bill.


Has a 10% chance to paralyze the target and a separate 10% chance to make the target flinch. For the purposes of type effectiveness, this move is both Fighting and Dark type: its final effectiveness is determined by multiplying the effectiveness of each type against each of the target's types. (Ghost is made neutral as an exception.)

For all other purposes, including STAB and the effects of boosting held items, this move is pure Fighting type. If this move's type is changed, its Fighting typing is overwritten, and its secondary type remains Dark.
