Struggle (Japanese: わるあがき Vain Struggle) is a move that cannot be learned naturally by any Pokémon. However, every Pokémon can use it, but only if all of their moves cannot be used, usually due to a lack of PP.


Struggle deals damage to the opponent and the user receives recoil damage. The user takes recoil damage equal of 1/4 of its maximum HP. Struggle will automatically be used by a Pokémon that has no usable moves but is ordered to attack, and has infinite PP in such a situation.

If the user of Struggle attacks first and faints itself due to recoil damage, the opponent will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round. If Struggle breaks a substitute, the user will take no recoil damage.

If the only usable move was disabled by Disable, the target will start to use Struggle.

Struggle now inflicts normal damage to Steel-type Pokémon as well as Rock-type, and hits Ghost-type Pokémon even if the user has not previously used Foresight.

Pokémon with the Wonder Guard Ability are not immune to Struggle. Rock Head does not prevent Struggle's recoil damage.
