Quite an appealing move.

Helping Hand (Japanese: てだすけ Help) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Helping Hand is an increased priority move that will raise the base power of the target adjacent ally's move by 50%.

It will fail if there is no adjacent ally, or if the target has already acted this turn.

It can still affect a Pokémon behind a substitute or in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move like Fly or Dig.

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

Trivia

  • Ever since its introduction, Helping Hand has the highest consistent priority of all moves, meaning a Pokémon performing this move will always go first unless another Pokémon uses Pursuit on a recalled Pokémon, or a Pokémon with Prankster uses a move with +4 priority.
  • In Generation III, the status screen erroneously states that the move has 100% accuracy, even though it ignores accuracy and evasion checks.
