Removes additional effects to increase move damage.
Sheer Force is an ability introduced in Generation 5. So far, 7 Pokémon have this ability.
Sheer Force removes additional effects from moves to increase their base power by 30%. Sheer Force does not remove negative effects to the bearer, such as recoil.
If a move is boosted by Sheer Force, it will not trigger any effects that occur after attacking. (such as healing from a Shell Bell) If an item has two effects, only the effects that activate after attacking will be negated. If a Pokémon holds a Life Orb, it will gain the passive damage boost (because it is not activated after the attack) but the recoil effect afterward will be ignored.
Outside of battle
Sheer Force has no effect outside of battle.
