Shadow Sneak (Japanese: かげうち Shadow Strike) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Shadow Sneak inflicts damage, and is an increased priority move. If the target does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, Shadow Sneak will go first regardless of the user's or target's speed. If the target also uses a move with an increased priority of +1 during the same round that the user uses Shadow Sneak, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Shadow Sneak is (or attempts to be) used, Shadow Sneak's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.
