From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Dragon Tail (Japanese: ドラゴンテール Dragon Tail) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TM82.
Dragon Tail 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, Dragon Tail also has decreased priority.
Dragon Tail 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.

|| The user knocks away the target, causing it to be switched out for a different Pokémon.
|| The target is knocked away and switched. In the wild, a battle against a single Pokémon ends.
