- Despite its name, Sucker Punch is not a punching move. The term "sucker punch" refers to an unexpected or cheap shot at an opponent, akin to its Japanese name, which translates to "surprise attack". Thus, many Pokémon that do not possess arms can learn this move, and its base power is not increased by Iron Fist.
