Flavor Text

The user takes the target into the sky, then drops it during the next turn. The target cannot attack while in the sky.


User carries the target high into the air for one turn, during which no moves will hit either Pokémon and neither can act. On the following turn, the user drops the target, inflicting damage and ending the effect.

If the target is Flying type, this move will function as normal but inflict no damage.

Gust, Hurricane, Shadow Dart, Sky Uppercut, Smack Down, Thunder, Twister, and Whirlwind can hit both the user and the target during this effect. Gust and Twister will additionally have double power.

The damage from Hail and Sandstorm still applies during this effect.

Either Pokémon may be hit during this effect if also under the effect of Lock-On, Mind Reader, or No Guard.

This move cannot be used while Gravity is in effect. This move will fail (and will not lift the target in the first place) if its target's weight is equal to or greater than 200 kg (440.8 lbs).
