Expanding Force (Japanese: ワイドフォース Wide Force) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation VIII.

If Psychic Terrain is in effect and the user is grounded upon its execution, this move gets a 1.5× power increase (in addition to the usual 1.3× bonus from terrain) and it becomes a move that targets both opponents.
