Acupressure is a non-damaging Normal-type move.


Acupressure chooses one of the target's stats at random and raises it by two stages. It can raise either the target's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed, accuracy or evasion stat, but will not attempt to raise a stat that is already maximized, meaning that the move will fail if all stats are maximized. Acupressure will also fail if the target is the ally and is under the effects of Substitute.

In a double battle, Acupressure can target its ally or the user itself.


The user applies pressure to stress points, sharply boosting one of its stats.
