Reflect Type (Japanese: ミラータイプ Mirror Type) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.
Reflect Type changes the user's type to match the type or types of the target. If the target has had a type added by Forest's Curse or Trick-or-Treat, Reflect Type will also copy the added Grass or Ghost type respectively. Reflect Type successfully copies the target's type even if it is disguised by Illusion. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
Reflect Type will fail if the target has no type (i.e. it was a pure Fire-type Pokémon that has lost its Fire type due to Burn Up); if such a target has additionally been affected by Forest's Curse or Trick-or-Treat, however, Reflect Type will cause the user to become a Normal type with an added Grass or Ghost type respectively. Reflect Type fails when used by a Pokémon with Multitype.
Reflect Type can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Synchronoise to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Reflect Type, the user's Special Attack stat is raised by one stage.
| The user reflects the target's type, making it the same type as the target.
