If one of the holder's moves misses one of its targets because of an accuracy or evasion check, the Blunder Policy is consumed and the holder's Speed is increased by two stages.

Blunder Policy does not activate if a one-hit knockout move misses, nor if a move misses due to a target being in the semi-invulnerable stage of a move. The Blunder Policy only activates if the move misses, so will not activate if a move fails to affect a target for other reasons (e.g. immunity due to type or Ability, being protected by a protection move, etc.).


Games Description
SwSh Raises Speed sharply when a Pokémon misses with a move because of accuracy.
