Effect

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.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
