Rock Polish (Japanese: ロックカット Rock Cut) is a non-damaging Rock-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM69 from Generation IV to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Effect

Rock Polish raises the user's Speed stat by two stages.

Rock Polish is a part of Contest Spectacular combination and using it will cause Baton Pass and Electro Ball to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Rockium Z into Z-Rock Polish, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.
