Fight: Grammar check
Selecting "Fight" will bring up another menu which allows the player to choose which of his or her Pokémon's current [[move]]s is to be used during the turn. Depending on its remaining {{PP}}, a move may or may not be able to be selected; at least 1 PP is required to select the move. If all moves have 0 PP or are not usable for another reason, the Pokémon will use {{m|Struggle}}.
Once both sides have selected the moves they will use, the Pokémon currently in battle will make each of their moves in turn, with the move with the highest [[priority]] going first, and the one with the lowest priority going last. If multiple Pokémon use moves of the same priority, then they will move in order of decreasing {{stat|Speed}}, unless {{m|Trick Room}} is in effect, in which case the slowest Pokémon will go first. A Pokémon may be unable to move if it is immobilized by a status condition such as {{status|paralysis}} or another status effect such as {{status|flinch}}ing, it is unable to use toits move due to an effect such as {{m|Taunt}} or {{m|Disable}}, or it [[obedience|disobeys]] its Trainer.
As each Pokémon makes its move, a Pokémon may [[fainting|faint]] if its {{stat|HP}} reaches 0. If this occurs, another Pokémon must be switched in to replace it in battle for the battle to continue. This switch occurs before the turn ends in Generations {{Gen|I}}, {{Gen|II}}, and {{Gen|III}}, but after the end of the turn in [[Generation IV]] and on, resulting in a slightly different strategy for Double Battles between Generation III and Generation IV.
