Ethereal Ace

A ghost-type move that rids the user of the effects of Infatuation. However it can only be learned by Shedinja, which is genderless...

Probably some kind of coding prank. Never seen outside of box 3. Is a slob apparently.

Combine that with skill swap and it might have a little use then. Might be a great cheese way to deal with an otherwise painful gym.

Toxic Orb Version 2: You can no longer get poisoned nor can poison others because it’s a rock painted to look like a toxic orb. Sorry bud, ya got scammed.

Fortunately for you, everywhere else in the region sells Toxic Orbs. Yay!


Unfortunately, they’re also fakes...

I just wanted to say, a Metronome Battle with Pokémon using the Blender ability would kinda be awesome.

Tired or inspired. Loves Cappuccino.
Full Moon beam: This move only deals damage on full moon nights. Move's base damage is the same as moonblast and also a fairy type, but also a dark type move (Just like Flying Press being Fighting and flying type).

This could be useful with the dual typing. Sure it only deals damage on Full Moons, but it now deal super effective damage on Psychic and Ghost, in addition to Fighting and Dragon (Since the dual type attack should mean it does regular damage against Dark, correct me if I’m wrong). I would honestly use this attack if the circumstances were met, so it wouldn’t be too useless.
Just useless outside of that time-frame.

Move it or lose it (ability): Boosts speed by 1 point when paralysed. But you still keep the speed drop from paralysis.

Wouldn't they stack together, making you less slow than if you were normally paralyzed? That could be quite helpful, especially if the Pokemon wanted to be using facade, since they'd be able to do that with more chance of being faster.

Blunder guard (ability): Can only be hit by super eff- wait, no. Can be hit by all attacks, whoops. Sorry about that.

Boost and then what? (move): Boosts both attack stats, but consfuses and infatuates you at the same time. You will then spend the next several turns either not attacking or hitting yourself.

Election Leaflet.

An limited-edition item which becomes widespread in the Galar region during December 2019. It functions exactly as Mail does, except the unedittable content is a spiel about a General Election your character is too naive to care about and too young to vote in.

The election leaflet cannot be sold, and attempting to toss it results in you being berated by a member of the Greens.

Over and over (move)

If the user has a not very effective move, he uses it and for the rest of the battle. If the opponent has a NVE move as well, he uses it too. Both of them use it until the battle ends and you can’t switch out.

If at least one of them lacks an NVE move, the ‘but it failed!’ message will appear again and again every turn, crashing the system.
