Feather Dance (Japanese: フェザーダンス Feather Dance), formatted as FeatherDance prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a non-damaging Flying-type move introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation IV, it was the signature move of Pidgey's evolutionary line, but other Pokémon could still inherit it via breeding. It is TM216 in Generation IX.

Effect

Feather Dance lowers the target's Attack stat by two stages.

If powered up by a Flyinium Z into Z-Feather Dance, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
