From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Power Trick (Japanese: パワートリック Power Trick) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.
Power Trick switches the user's Attack stat with its Defense stat; however, any boosts or reductions that have been applied to those stats are not switched. Using Power Trick again will remove the effect. The effect of Power Trick may be Baton Passed (swapping the recipient's stats).
Generation V onwards
Power Trick can now be stolen by Snatch. If Aegislash uses it, Power Trick's effects will be cancelled as soon as its Stance Change triggers. Power Trick's effects are nullified if a Pokémon undergoes Mega Evolution.
If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Power Trick, the user's Attack stat rises one stage.
