Circle Throw (Japanese: ともえなげ Overhead Throw) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Circle Throw inflicts damage. Additionally, it will automatically end wild Pokémon battles or, in a Trainer battle, it will switch out the opposing Pokémon to the next Pokémon in line that has not fainted. Like Roar and Whirlwind, Circle Throw has decreased priority in battle.

Circle Throw will fail to end wild Pokémon battles or switch out the opposing Trainer's Pokémon if it has the Ability Suction Cups, is under the effects of Ingrain, or has Substitute set up. In a Trainer battle, it will also fail to switch out the opposing Pokémon if there isn't another to take its place.

Description

Games Description
BW The user throws the target and drags out another Pokémon in its party. In the wild, the battle ends.
B2W2 The target is thrown and switched. In the wild, a battle against a single Pokémon ends.
