Psych Up (Japanese: じこあんじ Self-suggest) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM09 in Generation II before losing its TM status in Generation III. It regained its TM status, albeit as TM77, in Generation IV onwards.

Effect

Psych Up copies both the positive and negative changes to the target's stats and replicates them onto the user. The target's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed, accuracy and evasion are copied. Any changes made to the target's stats after Psych Up is used will not affect the user's stats.

Psych Up is not affected by Protect, Detect, or Spiky Shield, but will fail if the target is protected by Crafty Shield.
