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 moves. Normal-type status moves are also affected by Ion Deluge, which may cause them to trigger Lightning Rod, Motor Drive or Volt Absorb instead of having their normal effect.

Ion Deluge is an increased priority move, and will always execute first unless the opponent uses a move of higher priority -- namely, Ion Deluge does not affect Extreme Speed, Feint, or Fake Out, and will only affect Quick Attack or Bide if the user is faster than the Pokémon using the move.


Games Description
XY The user disperses electrically charged particles, which changes Normal-type moves to Electric-type moves.
