Psyshock is an offensive Psychic-type move.

Psyshock inflicts physical damage. Despite being classified as a special move, this move calculates damage using the user's Special Attack and the opponent's Defense stat (similar to Psystrike, Secret Sword and Coral Break).

Despite targeting the opponent's Defense stat, the move's damage is unaffected by Reflect and it will not activate Counter; instead, it is affected by Light Screen and activates Mirror Coat.

As of 1.0.4, it can be taught by the Special Move Tutor in Tsukinami Village Hotel, for 4 Blue Shards. Prior to 1.0.4, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village for four of each shard.
