Court Change (move)
コートチェンジ Court Change
|This move effect may be in need of research. |
Reason: Does it swap the effects of G-Max Volcalith?
You can this on the talk page.
Court Change causes any active battle effects to swap sides. This affects barriers like Reflect, multi-turn effects like Tailwind, and entry hazards like Spikes. Court Change does not cause any Pokémon afflicted with a volatile or non-volatile status condition to pass that condition to another Pokémon, nor does it transfer any Pokémon's stat changes to any other Pokémon. Court Change has no effect on effects that affect the entire field (like weather, terrain, or Trick Room).
If both sides of the battle are affected by the same effect, but are each on different remaining turns, Court Change will swap both effects' remaining turns.
If Court Change transfers an entry hazard, it will not have any effect until a new Pokémon is switched in. If a Pokémon with Defiant or Competitive is then switched in onto a Sticky Web, the Speed drop happens as usual, but the Abilities will not activate. Other Abilities like Contrary will, however.
