Ally Switch (Japanese: サイドチェンジ Side Change) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM51 in Generation V. In Generation VI, it is the signature move of Kadabra and Alakazam.
Ally Switch causes the user to switch places with the ally opposite to itself, and is an increased priority move. It will fail if the user is in the middle of the field in Triple Battles, if the user has no ally opposite it, or if used in a Single Battle or Multi Battle. Ally Switch does not trigger Pursuit.
