Bounce (Japanese: とびはねる Bounce) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generation III

The user bounces up high on the first turn, avoiding most moves. On the second turn, the user slams down onto the target, inflicting damage with a 30% chance of paralyzing it.

The user is able to be hit by Gust, Twister, Thunder, and Sky Uppercut during the semi-invulnerable turn of Bounce, and will receive double damage from Gust and Twister. The user may also be hit during the semi-invulnerable turn if it was previously targeted by Lock-On or Mind Reader.

Wild Pokémon can be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce.

Generation IV

A Pokémon in the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce can be hit if it is attacked by a Pokémon with No Guard or has No Guard itself.

Pokémon can no longer be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Bounce can be executed in one turn.

Generation V

The user can now also be hit by Hurricane and Smack Down during the semi-invulnerable turn of Bounce. If Smack Down hits, the user of Bounce will be knocked down, cancelling the move.

Bounce can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.

Generation VI

The user can now be hit by Thousand Arrows during the semi-invulnerable turn of Bounce. If it hits, the user of Bounce will be knocked down, cancelling the move.
