Trump Card (Japanese: きりふだ Trump Card) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation IV.


Trump Card's power depends on the move's remaining PP after use (including applying Pressure), powering up when its PP is lower. Trump Card's power is calculated as follows:

Remaining PP Power
4+ 40
3 50
2 60
1 80
0 200

When Trump Card is called by another move such as Metronome or Assist, it will instead use the PP of that move with the same chart applying.

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