Copycat is a Normal-type move.

Effect

Copycat copies whatever move was last used in the current battle. It fails if no other moves have been used.

If the copied move's target is not the user, an appropriate target is randomly chosen.
The last-used move is updated whenever any Pokémon attempts to use a move.

  • If a move successfully executes (generally, if the text "<Pokémon> used <move>!" is shown), that move becomes the last-used move. This is regardless of the move's result—whether it hit or missed or its effect was successful or failed (such as a Light Screen that fails because the previous Light Screen has not expired).
    • Moves that require multiple turns to execute:
      • Charging moves and Bide can be copied on any turn
      • Recharging moves are ignored on their recharge turn (the last move used remains whatever it was before the recharge message appeared).
    • If any move successfully calls another, the called move now counts as the last move used instead of the calling move.
  • The last move used is unaffected if a Pokémon tries to use a move but is prevented by a status condition or effect. In other words, the last-used move remains what it was before the Pokémon's turn.

Copycat will fail if any of the following moves are the last move.
