If an opponent uses a priority move (including moves boosted by Prankster, Gale Wings, or Triage) that targets the Pokémon with Dazzling or its allies, Dazzling prevents the Pokémon from executing that move (PP is still consumed). When this occurs, the text "[Pokémon] cannot use [Move]!" is displayed.
Moves that target all Pokémon (except Perish Song, Flower Shield, and Rototiller) and moves that target all foes cannot be blocked by Dazzling even if they become priority moves. Dazzling has no effect on allies' priority moves.
Priority status Z-Moves will have their Z-Power effect activate. For example, if a Pokémon uses Z-Baby-Doll Eyes on a Pokémon under the effect of Dazzling, the user will still gain Defense, but it will not lower the target's Attack.
Mold Breaker will ignore this Ability.
Outside of battle
Dazzling has no effect outside of battle.
