An '''Inverse Battle''' (Japanese: '''さかさバトル''' ''Reverse Battle'') is a [[Pokémon battle]] introduced in {{g|X and Y}}. During an Inverse Battle, type matchups are reversed. This type of battle is only conducted with {{tc|Psychic}} Inver on {{rt|18|Kalos}}, who can be battled once per day.
 
==Mechanics==
Any type that would be resistant or immune to another type is now weak to that type instead. The [[Ring Target]] has no effect on this, as it is applied after type effectiveness is reversed; as such, since there are no immunities due to type in Inverse Battles, it has no effect.
 
{{m|Stealth Rock}} is also affected, so Pokémon take damage based on their weakness or resistance to {{t|Rock}} under the inverse type chart. {{m|Freeze-Dry}} will always hit {{t|Water}} types for super effective damage, even if its type is changed. Abilities such as {{a|Sap Sipper}} that heal the Pokémon or boost a stat when hit by a specific type of move instead of taking damage still function normally.
