Works well if it is the same type as the move used by the last Pokémon.

Synchronoise (Japanese: シンクロノイズ Synchro Noise) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V.

Games Description
Using an odd shock wave, the user inflicts damage on any Pokémon of the same type in the area around it.

  • The English name of this move is a combination of the English words synchronize and noise, of which the Japanese and Korean names are transliterations. The German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish names translate it instead.
  • Due to the nature of this move, and the Dark type's immunity to the Psychic-type moves, pure Dark-type Pokémon (such as Umbreon) cannot use this move successfully under normal circumstances.
  • Despite having "noise" in its name, Synchronoise is not a sound-based move.
