May affect anyone but the user
  • Not a TM, HM or Move Tutor move.
The user grabs the target and recklessly dives for the ground. This also damages the user a little.


Submission does damage, and the user receives recoil damage equal to 25% of the damage done to the target.

If the user of Submission attacks first and faints due to recoil damage, the target will not attack or be subjected to recurrent damage during that round. However, the user will still be subject to recurrent damage even if the target faints. Self-inflicted recoil damage from Submission from the previous turn can be countered if the target does not make a move on the following turn.

The user will take recoil damage even if Submission breaks a substitute.
