Snipe Shot (Japanese: ねらいうち Snipe Shot) is a damage-dealing Water-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Inteleon.


Snipe Shot deals damage and has an increased critical hit ratio. It is unaffected by moves and Ability effects that draw in moves, such as Follow Me and Storm Drain.

Prior to Version 1.2.0 of Sword and Shield, if Snipe Shot was selected by Metronome, the move would fail (as Metronome targets oneself when it is used).


Games Description
SwSh The user ignores the effects of opposing Pokémon's moves and Abilities that draw in moves, allowing this move to hit the chosen target.
