Swift (Japanese: スピードスター Speed Star) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM39 in Generations I and II.

Swift inflicts damage and is unaffected by modifications to the accuracy stat and evasion stat. It can hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of moves such as Dig and Fly.

Generation II

Swift no longer hits the target during the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly or Dig, and moves such as Protect also allow the opponent to avoid taking damage.

Generations III and IV

Swift hits both opposing Pokémon in a Double Battle.

Generation V

In a Triple Battle, Swift will only hit opposing adjacent Pokémon.
