Effect

Forces the holder to move last in its priority bracket, regardless of its Speed. This item is unaffected by Trick Room.

Generation IV

If multiple Pokémon holding a Lagging Tail or Full Incense use moves with the same priority, the Pokémon with the lower Speed will move first (regardless of Trick Room).

A Pokémon with Stall moves before Pokémon holding a Lagging Tail or Full Incense. If a Pokémon with Stall also holds a Lagging Tail or Full Incense, Stall does not affect when the Pokémon moves.

Generation V onward

If multiple Pokémon with the Ability Stall or that are holding a Lagging Tail or Full Incense use moves with the same priority, the Pokémon move relatively according to Speed (the order is reversed during Trick Room).
