Fling

Fling is a rather unique attack in the manner that the Base Power is not determined at the start, but is rather calculated based upon the hold item that you are using

The premise of Fling, the Dark Type Move, is that the Pokémon literally throws their current hold item at the opponent, thus losing the item. This does however mean that Fling is a one-time use attack, unless your have a Pokémon that knows Recycle as well in which you can get multiple uses out of it. However, in-game if you use this. The item is lost for good so be careful if you're using it else you may wind up losing that rare Lucky Egg

As the Base Power can get up to 130, it adds major strategy possibilities, especially on Dark Type Pokémon which get the Same Type Attack Bonus from this move. Causing 195 Base Power maximum

In addition to this, in Pokémon Black & White, Pokémon with the ability PickUp will pick up almost any item which has been flung in the battle meaning you may be able to keep certain items if you lose it. However, Pokémon with the ability Klutz are unable to use Fling.

There are several Base Power possibilities for the items. As every item is capable of being thrown, the lists are quite extensive so use this table to navigate to see what item corresponds to the power:

Fling Lists
10 20 30 40 50 60
70 80 90 100 130

However, that is not the only thing that Fling can do. Several items have got added effects. Below are those items, their effects and their Base Power.
