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, including status moves. Moves with a charging turn will only change type if the user is affected by Electrify on the turn it does damage. Ion Deluge does not change Conversion into Electric-type move, thus Conversion will not change the user into the Electric-type. (If Conversion were at the top of the target's move list.)
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 Ion Deluge after Normalize will hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively.
