Secret Power (Japanese: ひみつのちから Secret Power) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM43 from Generation III to Generation IV, and TM94 in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. From Generation V to VII, except in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it is the signature move of Audino.

Generation III

In a Pokémon Contest, Secret Power uses Needle Arm's animation (but not the effects).

Secret Power's secondary effect chance is doubled by Serene Grace.

Generations IV and V

It no longer has the out-of-battle effect of creating a Secret Base.

Generation VI

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Secret Power can again be used to create Secret Bases at Secret Spots. Secret Power can only be used in the field once the player has obtained its TM (TM94).

Generation VII onward

Secret Power can no longer be used outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Secret Power is a move with 14 base power, 10PP and 88% accuracy. The user attacks enemy in front, possibly inflicting a secondary effect, which depends on the dungeon's current terrain.

In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, it is also affected by moves that change terrain.

Prior to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, the animation was always that of Needle Arm. Since then, Secret Power has its own unique animation that remains the same regardless of the dungeon terrain.

Trivia

  • Secret Power is the only:
  • Secret Power only uses the animations of damage-dealing moves.
  • In Generation IV and V as well as Pokémon X and Y, Secret Power only uses the animations of single-target moves.
  • In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Secret Power uses the animation of Incinerate in a volcanic area and the animation of Swift in space, the only instances of it using the animation of a multi-target move in Generation VI.
    • As a result, it has a unique animation when used in Horde Encounters in volcanic areas (there are no battles with multiple opponents in space). Incinerate shoots fireballs at all opponents, whereas Secret Power only shoots a fireball at the target. This is the only instance in the core series games that Secret Power has a unique animation.
  • In Generation VII, Secret Power uses the animation of Incinerate when used in volcanic areas, the only instance of it using the animation of a multi-target move in that generation. Unlike in Generation VI, it uses the same animation as Incinerate in battles with multiple opponents, causing both opponents to react to the hit despite the move only affecting one of them.
