From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Ion Deluge (Japanese: プラズマシャワー Plasma Shower) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI.
For the remainder of the current turn, all Normal-type moves used by any Pokémon on the field become Electric-type instead, including status moves. Moves with a charging turn will only change type if the user is affected by Ion Deluge on the turn the move does damage. Ion Deluge does not affect Conversion, which still takes into account a move's original type; therefore a Pokémon with a Normal-type move at the top of its move list (including Conversion itself) using Conversion will become Normal-type and not Electric-type even under the effect of Ion Deluge.
Ion Deluge does not affect Struggle.
If the move Flying Press used by a Pokémon with Normalize is affected by Ion Deluge, it deals Electric/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry used by a Pokémon with Normalize is affected by Ion Deluge, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively does not stack with its Electric typing (a Water-type Pokémon hit by the move will only take ×2 damage); in Inverse Battles, Freeze-Dry affected by Normalize and then Ion Deluge will hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively.
