Acrobatics (Japanese: アクロバット Acrobat) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM62 from Generations V through Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. In Generation VIII, it is TM78.

Effect

Acrobatics deals damage and its power is doubled to 110 if the user has no held item. Acrobatics can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles. If the user is holding a Flying Gem, the item is consumed before this move checks whether the Pokémon has an item or not; therefore, the power is still doubled.
