Stored Power (Japanese: アシストパワー Assist Power) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation V.
Stored Power has variable power depending on the total amount of positive stat stages the user has accumulated. When the user has no positive stat changes, Stored Power's base power is 20. Its power increases by 20 for each positive stat stage the user has in any stat, and does not decrease in power due to any negative stat stages. It can reach a maximum power of 860 (20 + 20 × ( 7 × 6 ), if all seven stats (Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed, evasion, and accuracy) are at their maximum stage.
Stored Power can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if a certain move (Amnesia, Calm Mind, Cotton Guard, Hone Claws or Nasty Plot) was used in the prior turn.
