Teeter Dance (Japanese: フラフラダンス Dizzy Dance) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature move of Spinda, but other Pokémon could still inherit it via breeding.

Effect

Generation III

Teeter Dance confuses all Pokémon adjacent to the user.

Generation IV onwards

Teeter Dance can now be copied by Mirror Move.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Teeter Dance, the user's Special Attack stat rises by one stage.
