Snatch (Japanese: よこどり Snatch) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM49 from Generation III to Generation IV.

Effect

Snatch is an increased priority move. The effects of the first status move used by any other Pokémon on the same turn will be applied to the user of Snatch instead of the other Pokémon.

If two Pokémon use Snatch, the faster of the two will Snatch the first status move, while the slower one will Snatch the move from the faster user of Snatch. This means that only the slower user of Snatch will be able to receive the effects of the status move.

The moves that can be affected by Snatch include stat boosters such as Swords Dance and Calm Mind as well as others like Substitute and Synthesis. In a Double Battle or Triple Battle, Snatch will steal an ally's move if it is applicable. Snatch cannot steal the effects of Helping Hand or King's Shield.

Generation VI

If two Pokémon use Snatch, the faster Pokémon will receive the benefit of the move it snatched, while the slower Snatch user has to snatch another move on that turn, if there are any remaining.[1]
