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. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.

Round 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.

Round will have its power boosted by 30% when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Punk Rock. The damage dealt by Round 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 be raised by one stage.

User First Used In Notes
  Swoobat Swoobat opens its mouth and releases a high-pitched note from its mouth, causing red, green or blue sound waves to come out of its mouth. The opponent then holds its ears in pain. As the sound waves fly towards the opponent, they grow bigger. The attack is much more powerful when used in a group.
