Attack Order (Japanese: こうげきしれい Attack Order) is a damage-dealing Bug-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is one of the signature moves of Vespiquen.


Attack Order deals damage and has an increased critical hit ratio.

Attack Order can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if the move Focus Energy was used in the prior turn.
