Tickle

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal - 100% 20 0 - Single non-user

Description

Lowers the target's Attack and Defense by one stage. Pokemon protected by Magic Coat or the ability Magic Bounce are unaffected and instead redirect this move back to the user.

Competitive Use

Moves that deal no damage and lower the opponent's stats have never been very popular, but Tickle finds itself with one distinct niche: Wobbuffet and Wynaut can use it to great effect to soften up opponents. After several uses of Tickle, you can switch in a Pursuit user for a virtually guaranteed KO, or send in a setup sweeper while the foe helplessly switches out.
