Rage Powder (Japanese: いかりのこな Rage Powder) is a non-damaging Bug-type move introduced in Generation V.


Generation V

Rage Powder makes the user the center of attention, forcing opposing Pokémon to use its move on the user rather than the intended target (even if it was a friendly target, unless it is a move that cannot target an opponent such as Acupressure or Helping Hand) for the rest of the turn. If a move cannot target the center of attention, it will be used on its intended target. It does not affect allies.

If the center of attention faints, switches out, or is taken into the air by Sky Drop, it no longer draws moves.

In Triple Battles, Rage Powder will draw the attacks of all opponents in the field, but it can only draw attacks from non-adjacent opponents if they use a move which is able to strike non-adjacent targets.

Rage Powder cannot draw moves with a charging turn like Sky Drop or Solar Beam.

Rage Powder draws Electric- and Water-type moves even if a Pokémon with Lightningrod or Storm Drain is on the field. If another Pokémon on the same team is already the center of attention, the first user takes priority; if the first user is outside of range or stops being the center of attention, the attack will be drawn to the next center of attention.

Due to only having a priority of +3, Rage Powder cannot divert Snatch (unless the user has Prankster and would move before the Pokémon using Snatch) or Pursuit being used on a switching ally; due to being in the same priority bracket, Rage Powder can only divert Fake Out if the user of Rage Powder would move before the user of Fake Out. Rage Powder has no effect on moves which hit multiple Pokémon in a battle. While it can be used in Single Battles, it has no effect.

Generation VI

Rage Powder now has +2 priority. As such, it can no longer divert Fake Out (unless the user has Prankster and would move before the Pokémon using Fake Out), and cannot divert Snatch under any circumstances. In addition, it can now only divert Extreme Speed if the user of Rage Powder would move before the user of Extreme Speed.

Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are now immune to Rage Powder, such that their attacks are not diverted by it.


Games Description
The user scatters a cloud of irritating powder to draw attention to itself. Opponents aim only at the user.
