Rock Smash (Japanese: いわくだき Rock Smash) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM08 in Generation II, HM06 in Generations III and IV, TM94 in Generation V and Pokémon X and Y, and HM06 in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Rock Smash has a base power of 20.

Generation IV onwards

In certain games, Rock Smash requires a specific badge to use outside of battle; the Marsh BadgeFRLG, Zephyr BadgeHGSS, Dynamo BadgeRSEORAS, or Coal BadgeDPPt.

Rock Smash can be used to break breakable rocks to clear a path. Occasionally, breaking a rock will cause a wild Pokémon to be encountered.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Rock Smash is a non-damaging move with 99 PP that never misses. It turns a wall tile in front of the user into a floor tile, even if there's a Pokémon inside it. It is incapable of destroying walls used for locked chambers as well as those at the edge of a floor, nor can it be used diagonally.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Rock Smash is now affected by Taunt.

In Gates to Infinity onwards, it's now a damaging move that might lower target's Defense.

Pokémon Masters EX

Category Move Gauge MP Base Power Max Power Accuracy Target Effect Tag Description
Physical 2 46 55 100% An opponent Has a chance (50%) of lowering the target's Defense by one stat rank.

Past Description

  • Prior to Version 2.10.0 (from June 28, 2021): Has a good chance of lowering the target's Defense.

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Rock Smash is Charizard's Side Special move. Unlike in the Pokémon games, Charizard will create a boulder and crush it with its head, producing multiple fragments of debris that fly off for extra damage. Rock Smash has high damage and knockback and can potentially KO a foe at low damage.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Rock Smash has been made Charizard's Down Special move, with Flare Blitz taking its former position. It was weakened greatly, but now also grants armor to protect Charizard from incoming attacks.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Rock Smash was removed from Charizard's moveset in favor of Pokémon Change, as Charizard has been reincorporated back into the Pokémon Trainer character.

Trivia

  • Rock Smash is the only HM move that does not share its type with another HM move, past or present.
  • Rock Smash is the only move to be a TM, become an HM, revert to being a TM again, and then revert to an HM.
  • Rock Smash and Rock Climb are the only moves that have the word rock in their name, but are not Rock-type.
    • Coincidentally, both have been HM moves at some point.
  • Although Rock Smash is a Fighting-type move, it uses the Rock-type TM icon in the Generation V games.
