Guard Swap

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Psychic - - 10 0 - Single non-user

Description

Swaps the user's Defense and Special Defense stat changes with the target's. This move cannot be blocked by Substitute.

Competitive Use

Swapping defensive boosts is relatively silly in a metagame where defensive boosting is so uncommon. Even if one hypothetically stole those boosts, the necessary power to break through defensive cores would still be needed.

Related Moves

Power Swap is similar; however, it works with Attack and Special Attack

Heart Swap is similar; however, it works with any stat of the target.
