Quash (Japanese: さきおくり Postpone) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM60 from Generation V to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Effect

Generations V-VII

The target of Quash will act last in that turn, ignoring priority, provided it has not yet acted.

If multiple Pokémon are affected by Quash, they move in the order they were affected by Quash.

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

Generation VIII

If multiple Pokémon are affected by Quash, they now move fastest to slowest.

Due to a glitch, in a Double Battle where the player who didn't initiate the challenge is down to their final Pokémon, that Pokémon's Quash originally failed when used against the opponent on their right, regardless of what move that Pokémon selected for the turn. With the release of the version 1.1 update to Sword and Shield, this glitch was fixed and Quash can now correctly hit Pokémon in that position.
