Half-life is a damage-dealing Nuclear-type move introduced in Pokémon Uranium. It can be considered a Nuclear counterpart to Super Fang.


Half-Life deals damage equal to half the target's current HP and has no secondary effect. Half-Life will cause the target to faint if it only has 1 HP left.

  • Half-life is named after half-life, the amount of time it takes for half of a sample of radioactive material to decay. It is also a play on words, as it literally halves the life (HP) of the Pokémon it hits.
