Flavor Text

The user slams the target with a charged limb that roars like thunder. The sound may also make the target flinch.

Move Description

The user swings an electrically-charged arm, leg, tail or other appendage at high speed and strikes the target. The limb creates a thunderous noise as it moves and may startle the target, but only if it can hear the sound.


Has a 30% chance to make the target flinch. Targets with Cacophony or Soundproof and targets that have been deafened will not flinch as a result of this move (but will still take damage as normal).
