Trick Room (Japanese: トリックルーム Trick Room) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV. It has been TM92 since Generation IV.


Trick Room reverses the move order within each priority bracket so that Pokémon with a lower Speed stat attack first, whilst those with a higher Speed stat will attack last. Individual brackets are still maintained; moves in higher priority brackets still work before moves in lower ones regardless of Trick Room. This effect lasts for five turns. Similar to Magic Room and Wonder Room, using Trick Room while it is already in effect will end it immediately.

Effects that alter the order of specific priority brackets override Trick Room. Therefore, Pokémon holding Full Incense or Lagging Tail and Pokémon with Stall will go last in their priority bracket regardless of their Speed stat. Pokémon activating Quick Claw will go first in their priority bracket.

Trick Room is in the -7 priority bracket and therefore will always go last, except against slower foes also using an attack in the same bracket.

In Generation V, there is a bug that causes any Pokémon with 1809 or more Speed to be unaffected by Trick Room.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

The user will either randomly reduce or increase the speed of all Pokémon on the floor.

User First Used In Notes
477 Dusknoir Dusknoir's eye glows red and a large light blue rectangle with light blue transparent walls and ceiling appear around the battlefield. Then, the light blue glow fades, and the walls and ceiling becomes invisible. During battle, while the attack is in effect, the slower Pokémon on the field moves extremely fast. Every time the opponent sends out a new Pokémon, the light blue transparent walls and ceiling appear again to show that it is still in effect.
