Skill Swap is an ability swapping Psychic-type move. It is TM48. It is located on Route 9, south of the Pyromaniac in versions 1.02 and beyond.


Skill Swap exchanges the Abilities of the user and the target. If a Pokémon affected by Skill Swap is switched out, it regains its original Ability. Skill Swap bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.
