|Paper Mario move|
|Effect||Watt shocks an enemy trying to inflict paralysis|
|Target||Any single enemy|
Power Shock is one of the default moves available that Watt can use in Paper Mario. This move costs Mario two FP, and if successful will inflict paralysis onto the target. To increase the chances of the move working, the player must repeatedly press to fill the gauge. The individual enemy's resistance dictates how difficult it is to fill the bar, and then the amount the bar is filled out to will indicate the success rate. However, unique to Power Shock, the game runs another check to see whether or not the status will be allowed to apply at all. This results in the move always having a lower success rate than expected unless maxed out, in which case the enemy is guaranteed to be paralyzed. By default, the paralysis this move inflicts lasts for 3 turns, though certain enemies may have a modifier that shortens or prolongs the effect.
