Psywave is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move.

Effect

Psywave inflicts a random amount of damage, varying between 0.5× and 1.5× the user's level. The damage is always rounded down; however, Psywave will always deal at least 1 HP of damage.

Though it is a Psychic move, Psywave deals typeless damage, taking neither weakness nor resistance into account, and not being affected by STAB, though it still cannot hit Dark-type Pokémon without using Miracle Eye.

Description
