Trick Room (Japanese: トリックルーム Trick Room) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.

It is:

Effect

Trick Room reverses the move order within each priority bracket so that Pokémon with a lower Speed stat attack first, while those with a higher Speed stat will attack last. Individual brackets are still maintained; moves in higher priority brackets still work before moves in lower ones regardless of Trick Room. This effect lasts for five turns, and using Trick Room counts as the first turn. Similar to Magic Room and Wonder Room, using Trick Room while it is already in effect will end it immediately.

Effects that alter the order of specific priority brackets override Trick Room. Therefore, Pokémon holding Full Incense or Lagging Tail and Pokémon with Stall will go last in their priority bracket regardless of their Speed stat. Pokémon activating Quick Claw will go first in their priority bracket.

Trick Room has a priority of -7, so will be used after all moves with a normal priority.

From Generation V onwards, due to the way Trick Room affects Speed calculation, Pokémon with 1809 or more Speed will still act before Pokémon slower than 1809, even in Trick Room. Specifically, Pokémon with a Speed stat closest to 1809 without going under go first.

If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Trick Room, the user's accuracy is raised by one stage.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky, Trick Room is a move with 10PP that ignores accuracy and evasion checks. The user targets all Pokémon on the floor, randomly increasing or decreasing their Movement Speed by one stage (even if already at maximum or minimum). This move is affected by Taunt.

From Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity onward, Trick Room reverses any changes to Travel Speed until the player's team progresses to the next floor. It will not affect the permanent Travel Speed boost of opposing Kecleon. Unlike the main series games, using Trick Room again does not end its effect.

Dusknoir Spritzee
The user creates a bizarre area in which slower Pokémon get to move first.
Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
  Dusknoir Dusknoir's eye glows red and a large light blue rectangle with light blue transparent walls and ceiling appears around the battlefield. Then, the light blue glow fades, and the walls and ceiling become invisible. During the battle, while the move is in effect, the slower Pokémon on the field move extremely fast. Every time the opponent sends out a new Pokémon, the light blue transparent walls and ceiling appear again to show that it is still in effect.
Conway's Dusknoir Working on a Right Move! Debut
  Spritzee Spritzee's body glows light blue and a large light blue rectangle with light blue and white transparent walls and ceiling appears around the battlefield. During the battle, while the move is in effect, the faster Pokémon on the field move slower than usual. If the wall takes enough damage, it will shatter. The move will wear off on its own in a certain period of time.
