Psyshock is a Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM03 from Generation V to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon of Generation VII.

Description

Games Description
BWB2W2
XYORAS
SMUSUM
SWSH
The user materializes an odd psychic wave to attack the target.

Effect

In battle

Psyshock does damage to the target, but despite Psyshock being a special move, its damage is dependent on the target's Defense instead of its Special Defense. In a Double Battle, Psyshock can target any Pokémon around the user; in a Triple Battle, Psyshock can only target a Pokémon that's adjacent to the user.
