Power Trick (Japanese: パワートリック Power Trick) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Generation IV

Power Trick switches the user's Attack stat with its Defense stat; however, any boosts or reductions that have been applied to those stats are not switched. Using Power Trick again will remove the effect. The effect of Power Trick may be Baton Passed (swapping the recipient's stats).

Generation V onwards

Power Trick can now be stolen by Snatch.

If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Power Trick, the user's Attack stat raises one stage.
