So yeah, we know Shuckle is capable of doing the most damage in one attack.

But we never actually know if it does 213,896,052 damage.

If all conditions were satisfied, one would be Lvl 1 Ledyba/Yanma being the opponent. Because the maximum HP of a Lvl 1 Ledyba/Yanma most definitely doesn't exceed 200,000,000, we'd NEVER know if Shuckle dealt the most damage it could.

Sorry for looking at the glass half empty. I know people are going to say that it could've dealt 213,896,052 damage and be happy, but I'm just stating a fact...

We know that it actually does that much damage with math. That is how everything is proven.

Well, technically, couldn't we use our own Yanma and perform the Pomeg berry glitch on it, allowing it to have 65,000~ Hit Points? Nothing else can do that without an insta-kill move, can they?

I'll come up with a sig sometime, it's just that posts look so much better with something written down here.

That number is derived from the equation for damage. The result is 213,896,052. The fact that there is no Pokemon with that much health is moot.

But there is a random multiplier in the equation. The damage is multiplied by a number between 0.85 and 1. So we really do not know.

It can. Doesn't mean it does every time

EDIT: You know what? From Bulbapedia:

A level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters, by using Helping Hand, Metronome held item, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power or Huge Power, 6 Attack boosts, and the Defense Curl/Rollout combo. Also, Shuckle's partner must have the ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 5th impact of Rollout, if used against a level 1 Ledyba or Yanma that have been hit with negative Defense modifiers (such as Screech), it can deal 213,896,052 damage with a critical hit.

Power Trick, maxed out Rollout.

With +6 modifier to Attack as well against a level one Pokemon with a 4x weakness to Rock and the lowest possible Defense.


Add on Rollout to the max power, as well as the item Metronome, as well as Defense Curl to boost Rollout, and Helping Hand from another pokemon. Also have to skill swap on Huge Power/Pure Power, and it's partner must have the ability Flower Gift in the sun.
