From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Lunar Dance (Japanese: みかづきのまい Crescent Moon Dance) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature move of Cresselia.
Lunar Dance causes the user to faint, but restores the HP, PP and removes all status ailments of the Pokémon that is sent out to take its place. The Pokémon is sent out before the end of the turn so if the user moves before the opponent then the Pokémon will be sent out followed by the opponents attack, however in Generation V the Pokémon is sent out at the end of the turn after all other Pokémon have moved.
