Spikes is a Ground-type move.

As of 1.0.4, it can be taught by the Debuff Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village Hotel for four Green Shards. Prior to 1.0.4, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor in Tsukinami Village, at a cost of 4 shards of each color.


This move sets the Spikes entry hazard on the opponent's side. Up to three layers of Spikes can be set. Flying-type Pokémon and Pokémon with Levitate are not affected by Spikes. Spikes can be removed if a Pokémon on the afflicted side uses Rapid Spin or if a Pokémon on either side uses Defog.

Spikes will do a varying percentage amount of damage to each Pokémon that switches in on that side depending on how many layers have been set:

Layers Damage (Max. HP)
1 12.5%
2 16.67%
