Payback

Payback is a damage dealing Dark-type move first introduced in Generation IV of main series games (Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum versions). Curiously, main series Machamp can’t learn Payback through regular leveling — you need to use TMs to learn Payback. In the main series, Payback has an interesting mechanic:

If the user can use this attack after the foe attacks, its power is doubled. The user stores power, then attacks. If the user can use this attack after the foe, its power is doubled.

Payback stats are as follows:

PvE Stats
Damage 100
Energy -100
Duration 2.2s
Damage window 1.1s – 2.0s
PvP Stats
Damage 110
Energy -60
