Gravity (Japanese: じゅうりょく Gravity) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Gravity causes the field to undergo intense gravity. This effect lasts 5 turns.
During intense gravity, the accuracy of moves used by all Pokémon in battle are multiplied by 5/3.
Intense gravity prevents Pokémon from reaping immunity to Ground-type moves due to their Flying type, Levitate Ability, effects of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis, or their held Air Balloon. This also means that those Pokémon are now vulnerable to Arena Trap and entry hazards; Poison-type Pokémon that are usually airborne will remove Toxic Spikes when switched in during the effects of Gravity.
Intense gravity also prevents Pokémon from using the moves Bounce, Fly, Splash, Jump Kick, Hi Jump Kick, Magnet Rise, Telekinesis, Sky Drop and Flying Press. If a Pokémon is in the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly or Bounce when Gravity is used, that move is canceled immediately.
In Generation V only, due to a glitch, if Gravity is used while two Pokémon are in the semi-invulnerable state of Sky Drop, Gravity will bring the user of Sky Drop down, but the target of Sky Drop will be stuck unable to move in the semi-invulnerable state until the effect of Gravity ends, the user of Sky Drop switches out or is knocked out, or the Pokémon affected by Sky Drop is knocked out. This can only occur in Double and Triple Battles. In later Generations, both user and the target are properly brought down.
Intense gravity also prevents Pokémon from using the move Flying Press. Pokémon that lose their immunity to Ground-type moves due to intense gravity can also be affected by terrain effects.
If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Gravity, the user's Special Attack stat is raised by one stage.
