Pound is a Normal-type move that was introduced in Generation I and many Pokémon can learn it at a low level. The user pounds the opponent with their tail, legs, body, etc.

Effect

Pound inflicts damage and has no secondary effect.

Pound can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing Double Slap, Feint Attack and Slam to give two extra appeal points if used in the next turn.

Description

The target is physically pounded with a long tail or a foreleg, etc.

In the Super Smash Bros. Series

Pound is Jigglypuff's side special move (Neutral in the original). It is used as Jigglypuff's primary recovery method as [[Sing] (its Up special) doesn't help it gain any height.
