Effect Entries

Inflicts regular damage. If the target is holding a berry, this move has double power, and the user takes the berry and uses it immediately. If the target is holding a jaboca berry or rowap berry, the berry is still removed, but has no effect. If this move is super effective and the target is holding a berry that can reduce this move's damage, it will do so, and will not be stolen.
