Core Enforcer (Japanese: コアパニッシャー Core Punisher) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is one of the signature moves of Zygarde.

Effect

Core Enforcer deals damage. If the target has already used a move or had a Bag item used on it by its Trainer in the same turn, Core Enforcer also suppresses the target's Ability while it remains in battle.

The target's Ability will not be suppressed if Core Enforcer misses or if the target is immune to or protected from the move. It cannot suppress Multitype, Stance Change, Schooling, Comatose, Shields Down, Disguise, RKS System, Battle Bond, Power Construct, or As One.
