Phantom Force (Japanese: ゴーストダイブ Ghost Dive) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation VI.

Effect

Phantom Force causes the user to "vanish" on the turn it is used, making it semi-invulnerable, and then reappear the next turn causing damage. It will hit the target even if it has used Protect, Detect, Spiky Shield, King's Shield, or Mat Block, and lifts the effects of those moves for the remainder of the turn; if it hits a target that is protected by Mat Block, it removes Mat Block from the target's side of the field. It also removes the effects of Quick Guard, Wide Guard, and Crafty Shield from the target's side of the field. The user of Phantom Force does not suffer the negative effects of its target's Spiky Shield or King's Shield. Phantom Force cannot remove the effects of protecting moves if it does not affect the target (such as if the target is Normal-type).

In addition, if the target has used Minimize, Phantom Force will never miss and deal double the damage.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Phantom Force can be executed in one turn.
