Vacuum Wave (Japanese: しんくうは Vacuum Wave) is a damage dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.
Vacuum Wave 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, Vacuum Wave 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 Vacuum Wave, the attack order of the users will be
determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Vacuum Wave is (or attempts to be) used, Vacuum Wave'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.
