Ally Switch (Japanese: サイドチェンジ Side Change) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TM51 as of Generation V.
Ally Switch causes the user to switch places with the ally opposite to itself, and is an increased priority move. It will fail if the user is in the middle of the field in Triple Battles or if used in a Single Battle. Ally Switch does not trigger Pursuit.
|| The user teleports using a strange power and switches its place with one of its allies.
