U-turn is a damage-dealing Bug-type move. It is the TM89 found in Highpoint City.

Effect

U-turn deals damage and then switches the user out. The user will not be switched out if the user is the only Pokémon in the party that is able to battle,

  • If using U-turn ends the battle. If U-turn faints a foe Trainer's Pokémon, the next Pokémon sent out by the user will not be counted for additional experience, and if the user is battling an NPC, the player will still have the ability to switch Pokémon in between Pokémon that have fainted.
  • If the next Pokémon sent out by the user is holding an Amulet Coin or Luck Incense, it will be counted for that even if it is immediately switched out in between fainted Pokémon.
  • If the foe Pokémon uses Pursuit on the same turn U-turn is used, Pursuit will deal normal damage if the foe is faster, or double damage if the foe is slower than the user.
  • U-turn may be used to switch out of Ingrain, but Ingrain's effects will not be passed on.
  • U-turn can also be used to switch out even if the user is under the effect of Arena TrapShadow TagMean LookSpider Web, or Block. U-turn will not force a switch if the user is holding a Red Card or the target is holding an Eject Button.

Description

Description
After making its attack, the user rushes back to switch places with a party Pokémon in waiting.
