The damage calculation for this move utilises the target's Attack stat, rather than the user's.
Any buffs or debuffs caused by abilities and moves (e.g. Huge Power, Swords Dance, Growl) that have been applied to the target's Attack are also incorporated. However, any alterations caused by STAB, being burned, Abilities like Adaptability or Tinted Lens, and items like Choice Band or BlackGlasses as applied to the user will also alter the final Attack value used.
In a triple battle, this move may target anyone facing or adjacent to the user.
