Gets the Pokémon pumped up. Helps prevent nervousness, too.

Autotomize (Japanese: ボディパージ Body Purge) is a non-damaging Steel-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Autotomize raises the user's Speed stat by two stages and (if the user successfully changes its Speed) decreases its weight by 220 lbs. (100 kg). If the user successfully changes its weight, the message "<Pokémon> became nimble!" is displayed.

Autotomize cannot decrease the user's weight below the minimum 0.2 lbs (0.1 kg); if the user's weight would drop below the minimum, it becomes the minimum instead. Weight loss from Autotomize stacks, so using it multiple times will continue to decrease the user's weight accordingly until it reaches the minimum weight. Autotomize's weight reduction cannot be transferred by Baton Pass or removed by Haze. A Pokémon's weight is reset if it changes form (from Generation VI onward), switches out or faints, or the battle ends.

Autotomize can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination and using it will cause Baton Pass and Electro Ball to give extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Steelium Z into Z-Autotomize, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.

Generation IX

Autotomize cannot be selected in a battle.
