Parting Shot (Japanese: すてゼリフ Parting Shot) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation VI. Prior to Generation VII, it was the signature move of Pancham and Pangoro.
Parting Shot lowers the target's Attack and Special Attack stats by one stage each, then switches the user out (even if it failed to lower the target's stats). It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.
If Parting Shot is used on a Pokémon with the Ability Magic Bounce, the effect will be bounced back to the user, lowering its Attack and Special Attack, and the target will switch out instead.
If the target will be using Pursuit and is slower than the user, it will hit the user before it switches out.
| With a parting threat, the user lowers the target's Attack and Sp. Atk stats. Then it switches with a party Pokémon.
