Trick (Japanese: トリック Trick) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generations III and IV

The user switches held items with the target. It fails if neither Pokémon has a held item, if either Pokémon is holding Griseous Orb, if the target is behind a substitute, or if the target has Sticky Hold (even if it has no held item). It also fails if either Pokémon has Multitype and either of the swapped items is a Plate.

In link battles, Secret Bases, and the Trainer House, items stolen will be returned at the end of the battle.

In Japanese Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, Trick can exchange Mail, but causes the Mail Trick glitch. In international releases of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, as well as all releases of subsequent games, Trick will fail if either Pokémon is holding Mail.

Generation V

Trick no longer switches a Trainer's Pokémon's items permanently; however, items switched in wild battles are permanently switched. Trick will now succeed with a Griseous Orb as long as neither the user nor the target is Giratina.

Trick cannot exchange a Drive if the user or the target is a Genesect.

Generation VI

Trick fails if the user or the target is holding a Mega Stone or a colored orb that can Mega Evolve them or cause them to undergo Primal Reversion, respectively.
