Sucker Punch (Japanese: ふいうち) is a damage-dealing Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Sucker Punch does damage, and is an increased priority move. If the opponent does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, Sucker Punch will go first regardless of the user's or opponent's speed. If the opponent also uses an increased priority move during the same round that the user uses Sucker Punch, the attack order of the users will be determined normally.

If the opponent uses a non-damaging move, Sucker Punch will miss.
