Vacuum Wave is a slightly damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation IV.

Effect

Vaccum Wave 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, Vaccum Wave 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 Vaccum Wave, the attack order of the users will be determined normally. If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the round that Vaccum Wave is (or attempts to be) used, Vaccum Wave'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.

Vacuum Wave is a Special-based variation of the move Mach Punch.
