Effect

In battle

Body Slam does damage and has a 30% chance to paralyze the target. In Generation I, Body Slam cannot paralyze normal-type Pokémon. In Generation VI, Body Slam cannot paralyze electric-type Pokémon. In Generation VI, if Minimize was used prior to using Body Slam, Body Slam will not miss and its power will be doubled. In a Double Battle, Body Slam can target any Pokémon around the user. In a Triple Battle, Body Slam can only target a Pokémon that's adjacent to the user.
