30% chance of causing the target to flinch.
Sky Attack is a two-turn offensive Flying-type move.
Sky Attack does nothing on the turn it is selected, other than say "(Pokémon Name) became cloaked in a harsh light!". On the following turn, Sky Attack will deal damage, PP will be deducted from it, and it will count as the last move used. Sky Attack has a 30% chance of causing the target to flinch and also has an increased critical hit ratio. Once Sky Attack is selected, the user will not be able to switch out until it is disrupted or fully executed.
If Sky Attack is not fully executed, PP will not be deducted from it, and it will not count as the last move used. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user is glowing, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using Sky Attack (or fail if it cannot).
Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Sky Attack
Sky Attack cannot be copied by Sketch on either turn of its use.
