Spikes is a non-damaging Ground-type move.

Effect

Spikes sets an entry hazard around the enemy team's field. Spikes can be set up to three times. Pokémon who switch into the spike-ridden field take damage depending on the number of layers of Spikes. One layer of Spikes will damage the opponent Pokémon by 1/8 (12.5%) of its maximum HP, two layers will deal 1/6 (16.67%), and three layers will deal 1/4 (25%).

Flying-type Pokémon, and Pokémon with Levitate, are immune to this damage (unless they are affected by Gravity, are holding an Iron Ball, or were Baton Passed an Ingrain). Any Pokémon under the effect of Magnet Rise or Magic Guard ability are unaffected by the damage.

The move Rapid Spin removes Spikes around the user. The move Defog will remove Spikes around its target.

Description
