Topsy-Turvy (Japanese: ひっくりかえす Flip) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Inkay and Malamar.

Effect

Topsy-Turvy reverses all stat changes on the target Pokémon, making positive changes negative and negative changes positive. If the target has no stat changes, Topsy-Turvy fails.

Because Topsy-Turvy changes stats rather than raising or lowering them, it is unaffected by effects such as Mist or Abilities such as Simple, Contrary, and Clear Body. It does not activate Defiant or Competitive.

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Topsy-Turvy, the user's Attack stat rises by one stage.

Generation VI

Topsy-Turvy has an accuracy of 100%.

Generation VII

Topsy-Turvy now bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
