Works well if it is the same type as the move used by the last Pokémon.

Round (Japanese: りんしょう Round) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM48 from Generation V to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and TM76 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Effect

Round inflicts damage. If another Pokémon uses Round before the user this turn, the user will use Round directly after it (regardless of Speed); all but the first Round within a turn will double in power to 120.

Round is a sound-based move.

Generation V

If used on a Pokémon behind a substitute, it hits that Pokémon's substitute.

Generation VI onwards

Round can now hit Pokémon even if they are behind a substitute.
