Overdrive (Japanese: オーバードライブ Overdrive) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Toxtricity.
Overdrive inflicts damage to all opponents. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof or Volt Absorb are not affected by this move.
Overdrive will become a Water-type move when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Liquid Voice. If the user is affected by Throat Chop, it will be unable to use this move for two turns.
Overdrive will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Overdrive will also be halved when used against a Pokémon with Punk Rock.
If the user is holding a Throat Spray, the item will be consumed and the user's Special Attack stat will raise by one stage.
