  • TM87

Swagger is a Normal-type Status Move. In Solar Light and Lunar Dark, this Move is TM87 and can be bought at the Game Corner in Rustbolt City for 3,000 Coins.


Swagger raises the target's Attack stat by two stages and confuses it. Even if the target is already confused, or cannot become confused due to an effect such as Safeguard, its Attack will still be raised, unless the target already has +6 Attack.

Also, the opposite applies with a Pokemon with Contrary as its Ability; Swagger will lower the target's Attack by 2 stages and becomes Confused. If the target is already at -6 Attack, it can still become Confused, unless it already is.


The user enrages and confuses the target. However, it also sharply raises the target's Attack stat.
