An '''Inverse Battle''' (Japanese: '''さかさバトル''' ''Reverse Battle'') is a [[Pokémon battle]] in the [[Generation VI]] [[core series]] games that were introduced in {{g|X and Y}}. During an Inverse Battle, type matchups are reversed and no type is immune to any other type.
In {{pkmng|X and Y}}, this type of battle is only conducted with {{tc|Psychic}} [[Inver]], who is located on {{rt|18|Kalos}} and can be battled once per day. In {{pkmng|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, this type of battle can be conducted with Proprietor Inver in the {{DL|Mauville City|Inverse Battle Stop}} in [[Mauville City]], as well as in a [[Secret Base]] if it is set to have Inverse Battles using the [[Decoration#Super-Secret Base|Proclamation]].
Any type that would be resistant or immune to another type is now weak to that type instead; also, any type that would be weak to another type is now resistant to that type instead. The {{DL|In-battle effect item|[[Ring Target}}]] has no effect on this type of battle, as it is applied after type effectiveness is reversed; as such, sincebecause 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|Thunder Wave}} can affect {{type|Ground}} Pokémon. [[Strong winds]] cause {{t|Bug}}-, {{t|Fighting}}-, {{t|Grass}}-, and {{type|Ground}} moves to deal neutral damage to Flying-type Pokémon.
{{m|Freeze-Dry}} will always hit {{t|Water}} types for super effective damage, even if its type is changed. Abilities such as {{a|Thick Fat}}, {{a|Sap Sipper}}, and {{a|Wonder Guard}} that provide a type resistance or immunity still function normally. Flying-type Pokémon are still immune to {{m|Spikes}}, {{m|Toxic Spikes}}, and {{m|Sticky Web}} unless grounded (and {{2t|Poison|Flying}}-type Pokémon cannot remove Toxic Spikes unless grounded).
