Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Psychic 65 100% 20 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to confuse the target.

Competitive Use

As level-up movepool filler, this move is outclassed by other Psychic-type moves competitively, especially Psychic. The 10% confusion probability is so inconsequential that it is not worth using.

Related Moves
