Spin Slash (Japanese: かいてんぎり Rotation Cut) is a ???-type move introduced in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team that inflicts damage in all eight directions.

This move is contained in a TM. This TM is not obtainable in-game, thus this move is only obtainable with use of cheating devices. No Pokémon can learn this move, so the TM is useless. Additionally, the machine was not included in the game code for Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky. The move still remains functional, but its name (except in Japanese) and description are dummied out as "$$$".

This move is likely to have been replaced by the HM Cut, which has the same range and effect as Spin Slash in these games.


In all non-Japanese versions of Red and Blue Rescue Team, the move's description is "NULL", while the TM's description is partially translated in French and German, left blank in Italian, and fully translated in Spanish.
