Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
  Sirfetch'd's body becomes surrounded in a yellow aura. It then thrusts its leek forward, causing the aura to travel down the leek until it gathers at the tip in a ball of energy, which then bursts into a yellow aura that surrounds the leek and Sirfetch'd; or Sirfetch'd's shield flashes and yellow sparks surround it before a yellow aura surrounds the leek and Sirfetch'd. It then charges forward and stabs the opponent with its leek at full force. After using the move, Sirfetch'd can't move for a while.
