Effect

Reason: What happens if used by a Pokémon that knows a Shadow move?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Generation I

Conversion changes the user's current type(s) to the target's current type(s).

Generations II to IV

Conversion changes the user's type to match the type of one of the user's moves. Conversion cannot be used on Curse in order to turn into a ???-type Pokémon.

Generation V

Conversion can now be stolen by Snatch.

Conversion can now be used on Curse, which is now a Ghost-type move.

Generation VI onwards

Conversion now changes the user's current type to match the type of the move the user has in its first move slot.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Conversion, the user's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed are raised by one stage each.
