Quick Attack (Japanese: でんこうせっか Lightning Speed) is a damage-dealing Normal-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Quick Attack inflicts damage. It has a priority of +1, so it is used before all moves that do not have increased priority.

If the user is put to sleep or frozen during the turn that Quick Attack is (or attempts to be) used, its increased priority will not be reset during the sleep or freeze. Subsequently, it can only be reset on the turn after the user wakes up or is defrosted, or if the user switches out.

Generation II onwards

Quick Attack's increased priority will no longer carry over to sleeping or frozen Pokémon; instead, the priority at which a sleeping or frozen Pokémon acts depends on the move it selects each turn.

Quick Attack can be used as the second move of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining 3 bonus appeal points if Double Team was used in the previous turn.

With some exceptions, Pokémon learnsets match those from the core series games:

Super Smash Bros. series

Pikachu uses Quick Attack as its up special. Pikachu dashes quickly, and can do so in two different directions, provided the angle difference is large enough. In the original Super Smash Bros., this move did no damage.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Quick Attack is one of Lucario, Scizor and Dodrio's two starting moves. Lucario and Scizor can learn it either at level 1 or 3 (depending if Meteor Mash or Fury Cutter, respectively, are learned first), and Dodrio can learn it either at level 1 or 2 (depending if Peck is learned first).

With Lucario, Quick Attack has the user lunge forward at a speed that makes it almost invisible, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits along the way.

By reaching level 5 with Lucario, Quick Attack is upgraded into either Extreme Speed or Power-Up Punch.

With Scizor, Quick Attack has the user dash forward, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits along the way.

By reaching level 7 with Scizor, Quick Attack is upgraded into either Double Hit or Swords Dance.

With Dodrio, Quick Attack has the user dash forward, increasing its movement speed for a short time and dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits along the way. Hitting opposing Pokémon reduces the move's cooldown.

By reaching level 7 with Dodrio, Quick Attack is upgraded into either Agility or Jump Kick.
