Metronome (Japanese: ゆびをふる Wag Finger) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Metronome randomly selects one move other than itself and Struggle, and fully executes the attack. An attack called by Metronome in this way counts as the last move used.

If Metronome successfully calls Hyper Beam or a partial trapping move and has 0 PP before the move fully executes, its PP can roll over in the same manner as the move is called. If Metronome calls Counter or Mirror Coat, it will always fail. A Pokémon will be able to use a move that is disabled if called via Metronome.

In the anime

Pokémon

Togepi. Togepi begins to wave its arms back and forth until they begin to glow white. A random move is then released.
