From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Powder (Japanese: ふんじん Dust) is a non-damaging Bug-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is one of the signature moves of Vivillon.
This move is an increased priority move. If a Pokémon affected by Powder attempts to use a Fire-type move during that turn, they take damage (regardless of type) equal to 25% of their maximum HP and cannot execute the move. Powder does not prevent a Pokémon from thawing itself by using a move like Flame Wheel.
Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are immune to Powder.
