Punishment is an offensive Dark-type move.
Punishment deals variable damage depending on the positive stat stages of the foe. Its damage is calculated by the following formula:
- Base Power = 60 + (20 * No. of stat increases), with a maximum base power of 200.
For example, if the target has used Bulk Up twice and Swords Dance once, there is a four-stage increase for the Attack stat and a two-stage increase in the Defense stat, making a total of six, which causes Punishment to have a base power of 180.
Stats decreased below normal do not affect the base power. Accuracy and evasion are ignored.
