Photon Geyser (move)

Photon Geyser compares the user's Attack and Special Attack stats, dealing damage to the target using the higher stat. If the user's Attack is greater than its Special Attack, the move will be a physical attack; if its Special Attack is equal to or greater than its Attack, it will remain a special attack. When determining which stat is higher, factor in changes to the stats that result from stat stages such as {{m|Swords Dance}} or {{m|Calm Mind}}, but not from any other source such as {{a|Huge Power}} or [[Choice Band]]. If Photon Geyser is determined to be physical, it will be treated as physical in all aspects; it's shielded by {{m|Reflect}} but not {{m|Light Screen}}, it enables {{m|Counter}} but not {{m|Mirror Coat}}, and it triggers [[Kee Berry]] but not [[Maranga Berry]]. This move also ignores the target's [[Ability]] if the Ability changes the effect of the attack on the target, much the same way as moves used by a Pokémon with {{a|Mold Breaker}}. Abilities that affect the user of the attack, like {{a|Pressure}}, are not ignored. Photon Geyser does not ignore the effects of {{a|Shadow Shield}} and {{a|Prism Armor}}. Photon Geyser's ability-ignoring effect does not apply if it is used via a {{cat|moves that call other moves|move that calls another move}}.
