The user counters the target by mimicking the target's last move.


Mirror Move uses the last move targeted at the user by a Pokémon still on the field. A move called by Mirror Move in this way counts as the last move used. Moves that target multiple Pokémon count as long as the user of Mirror Move is one of the targets.

Mirror Move will fail if the target did not make a move selection in the round before the use of Mirror Move, switches out during the round Mirror Move is used, or if the opponent's last move used was Mirror Move.

Paralysis, confusion, recharging, and building up for a multi-turn move have no effect to the last move used. If Mirror Move is used against a target that was fully paralyzed or hurt itself right before its use, Mirror Move will still use the last move that the target used. If Mirror Move is used during the first turn of a multi-turn move, Mirror Move will use the move that the opponent used before that move (or fail if no move was previously made).

A Pokémon will be able to use a move that is disabled if it is called via Mirror Move.

Mirror Move can be also used on teammates. If used on a move like Rock Slide that can only target opponents, Mirror Move will use it without hurting allies.

In Stadium, Mirror Move will copy multi-turn moves during either of the turns they take to execute.
