Return is an offensive Normal-type move. It is TM27, and can be bought in Greenpine City on specific days.
Return inflicts damage and has no secondary effect. The base power of Return is dependent on the friendship of the user. The greater the user's friendship, the greater the base power. The base power can be calculated using the following formula: Base Power = Friendship / 2.5
The base power of Return varies between 1 (at the minimum friendship value of 0) and 102 (at the maximum friendship value of 255). The base power of Return is set to 1 if the formula outputs 0. If the user's friendship is 127 or less, Frustration is stronger than Return.
A full-power attack that grows more powerful the more the user likes its Trainer.
