Phantom Force (Japanese: ゴーストダイブ Ghost Dive) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation VI.

Effect

Generation VI

Phantom Force causes the user to "vanish" on the turn it is used, making it semi-invulnerable, and then reappear the next turn causing damage.

Phantom Force hits the target even if it is protected by a protection move, and removes the effects of protection moves from the target for the remainder of the turn; if it hits a target that is protected by protection move that affects its whole side of the field, it removes the protection move from that entire side of the field (even if the protection move would not affect Phantom Force, such as Crafty Shield). If Phantom Force hits a Pokémon protected by a move with a negative effect (such as Spiky Shield), the user will not suffer the negative effect of the protection move. Phantom Force cannot remove the effects of protecting moves if it does not affect the target (such as if the target is Normal-type).

If the target has used Minimize, Phantom Force deals double its regular damage and bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

If a Power Herb is held by the user, Phantom Force can be executed in one turn.

Generation VII

Phantom Force no longer bypasses accuracy checks nor deals double its regular damage if the target has used Minimize.
