Bounce (Japanese: とびはねる Bounce) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation III. In Generation VIII, it is TM52.

Effect

Generation III

The user bounces up high on the first turn, avoiding most moves. On the second turn, the user slams down onto the target, inflicting damage with a 30% chance of paralyzing it.

The user is able to be hit by Gust, Twister, Thunder, and Sky Uppercut during the semi-invulnerable turn of Bounce, and will receive double damage from Gust and Twister. The user may also be hit during the semi-invulnerable turn if it was previously targeted by Lock-On or Mind Reader.

Wild Pokémon can be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce.

Generation IV

A Pokémon in the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce can also be hit if it is hit with Hurricane, Smack Down, and Thousand Arrows, is attacked by a Pokémon with No Guard, or has No Guard itself. If Smack Down or Thousand Arrows hits, the user of Bounce will be knocked down, canceling the move. If the user is hit by Gust or Twister during the semi-invulnerable turn, the move's power will be doubled rather than the damage dealt (resulting in virtually the same effect).

Pokémon can no longer be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Bounce can be executed in one turn.

Generation V onward

If the user is hit by Gust or Twister during the semi-invulnerable turn, the damage dealt will be doubled rather than the move's power (resulting in virtually the same effect).

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, and Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Bounce is a move with 16 base power, 100% accuracy, and 11 PP. The user attacks enemy in the front, possibly inflicting paralysis; this move's damage is doubled at the end of damage calculation. While the user is the air, projectiles will pass the user as if their tile was empty. As in main series, the user can still be hit by Gust, Thunder, Twister and Sky Uppercut, but not Whirlwind. Due to being a two-turn move, this move cannot be linked.
