Court Change (Japanese: コートチェンジ Court Change) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is one of the signature moves of Cinderace.

Effect

Court Change causes any active battle effects to swap sides. This affects barriers like Reflect and Light Screen, multi-turn status conditions like Tailwind, and entry hazards like Spikes and Stealth Rock. Court Change does not cause any Pokémon afflicted with a volatile or non-volatile status condition to pass that condition to another Pokémon, nor does it transfer any Pokémon's stat changes to any other Pokémon. Because Weather and Terrain both affect the entire battle, Court Change will have no effect on Sandstorm, Rain, Hail, Harsh Sunlight, Electric Terrain, Grassy Terrain, Misty Terrain, and Psychic Terrain. Additionally, moves like Trick Room, Magic Room, and Wonder Room are all unaffected by Court Change.

If Court Change would transfer an entry hazard to a Pokémon's side that would normally cause damage (i.e. Poison Spikes on a non-Poison-type Pokémon), it will not have any effect until a new Pokémon is switched out.

Concerning abilities like Defiant or Competitive, Sticky Web used in conjunction with Court Change will not cause either ability to activate upon the Speed stat being lowered. Other abilities like Defiant will still activate, however.
