Power Swap (Japanese: パワースワップ Power Swap) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is TM60 in Generation VIII.

Contents

Effect

Power Swap switches the user's Attack stat stages and Special Attack stat stages with the target's Attack stat stages and Special Attack stat stages. Since this changes stat stages, the stat stages can be passed via Baton Pass.

Power Swap bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Power Swap, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.
