Power Swap (Japanese: パワースワップ Power Swap) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Power Swap switches any changes to the user's Attack stat and Special Attack stat with any changes to the target's Attack stat and Special Attack stat. The stat stage changes provided by Power Swap may be Baton Passed.

Power Swap bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
