From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Ice Shard is a Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV that is an increased priority move.
Ice Shard does damage, and is an increased priority move. If the opponent does not use an increased priority move during the round that it is used, Ice Shard will go first regardless of the user's or opponent's speed. If the opponent also uses an increased priority move during the same round that the user uses Ice Shard, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Ice Shard is (or attempts to be) used, Ice Shard's increased speed priority will not be reset. Subsequently, it will only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.
