Magnetic Flux (Japanese: じばそうさ Magnetic Field Manipulation) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Magnetic Flux raises the Defense and Special Defense stats of allied Pokémon (including the user) with the Ability Plus or Minus by one stage each.

If powered up by an Electrium Z into Z-Magnetic Flux, the user's Special Defense is raised by one stage (in addition to the raise caused by the move, if applicable).
