Quash (Japanese: さきおくり Postpone) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TM60 as of Generation V.
The target of Quash will act last in that turn, ignoring priority, provided it has not yet acted.
If multiple Pokémon are affected by Quash, they move in the order they were affected by Quash.
If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Quash, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.
