If the target has not made its move this turn, but is scheduled to use a damage-dealing move, Me First copies that move preemptively and increases the [[power]] by 50%. It bypasses {{stat|accuracy}} checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the {{cat|Moves with a semi-invulnerable turn|semi-invulnerable turn}} of a move such as {{m|Dig}} or {{m|Fly}}. Me First will fail if the target selected a non-damaging move, or if the target already executed its move this turn.
If the target is about to recharge from a move like {{m|Frenzy Plant}} this turn, Me First will copy the move. If a {{cat|Consecutively executed moves|consecutively executed move}} like {{m|Outrage}} is copied, it will force the user of Me First to use the move for several turns, but the 50% increase in power only applies to the first turn. Me First is unable to copy {{m|Struggle}}, {{m|Belch}}, {{m|Chatter}}, {{m|Covet}}, {{m|Thief}}, {{m|Focus Punch}}, {{m|Shell Trap}}, {{m|Beak Blast}}, {{m|Counter}}, {{m|Mirror Coat}}, {{m|Metal Burst}}, [[Z-Move]], or {{cat|moves that call other moves|moves called by other moves}}.
Unlike other moves, if the target of Me First is a vacant slot or a Pokémon that already fainted before the Me First user's turn, Me First will fail instead of being redirected to an adjacent non-fainted opponent.
===Generation VII===
When Pokémon holding a [[Choice items]] copies {{cat|Consecutively executed moves}} or {{m|Bide}} by Me First, those moves will fail inafter the nextfirst turn.
If powered up by a [[Normalium Z]] into Z-Me First, the user's {{stat|Speed}} stat rises by two stages. Additionally, the copied move will become its corresponding [[Z-Move]].
