Embargo (Japanese: さしおさえ Seize) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It has been TM63 since Generation IV.

Effect

Generation IV

The target is unable to use its held item and the Trainer is also unable to use items on that Pokémon for five turns. The effect wears off if the Pokémon switches out.

A Pokémon under the effect of Embargo cannot use Fling.

Generation V

Embargo can now be reflected with Magic Coat.

Generation VI onward

Embargo does not prevent the use of Mega Stones when Mega Evolving a Pokémon.

Does not prevent the experience boost from Lucky Egg. (Needs to be tested in Gen IV and V)

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Embargo, the user's Special Attack stat raises one stage.
