Aura Wheel inflicts damage and raises the user's Speed stat by one stage. Its type changes depending on Morpeko's current mode.
The user's Speed stat will not be raised if the attack misses or the target is immune to or protected from the move.
Aura Wheel can only be successfully used by Morpeko (or a Pokémon that has transformed into Morpeko). If this move is used by any other Pokémon, the move will fail. Any Pokémon can learn Aura Wheel via Mimic, but it fails when used.
