Synchronoise (Japanese: シンクロノイズ Synchro Noise) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V.


Games Description
BWB2W2 Using an odd shock wave, the user inflicts damage on any Pokémon of the same type in the area around it.

  • Its Japanese and English name is a play on the word synchronize (which is the name of an Ability).
  • Due to the nature of this move, and the Dark type's immunity to the Psychic type, an Umbreon cannot use this move succesfully under normal circumstances.
    • It will only deal damage if a Dark-type foe is holding a Ring Target or is under the effects of Miracle Eye, or if Umbreon has had its type changed.
  • Due to its Ability Color Change, Kecleon is able to use this move against any type without requiring the same specific circumstances as other Pokémon.
