Spotlight (Japanese: スポットライト Spotlight) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation VII.
Spotlight causes the move's target to become the center of attention, forcing all attacks from the target's foes to target it instead of their intended target. This effect overrides any other forms of redirection, either through moves like Follow Me and Rage Powder, Abilities like Storm Drain and Lightning Rod, or Ally Switch.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Spotlight, the user's Special Defense stat rises by 1 stage.
|| The user shines a spotlight on the target so that only the target will be attacked during the turn.
