From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Psycho Boost (Japanese: サイコブースト Psychoboost) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III. It is the signature move of Deoxys in the handheld games.
Psycho Boost inflicts damage, and lowers the user's Special Attack stat by two stages.
In the anime
- Psycho Boost has the highest base power out of all Template:Type2 moves.
- Psycho Boost has the same description as its Template:Type2 counterpart, Overheat.
- Despite the fact that this move is Deoxys's signature move, Lugia is still able to learn the move, though only via purification in Pokémon XD.
