Trump Card is a damage-dealing Normal-type move.


Trump Card's power depends on Trump Card's remaining PP after use (including applying Pressure), powering up when its PP is lower. Trump Card's power is calculated as follows:

Remaining PP Power
4+ 40
3 50
2 60
1 80
0 200

When Trump Card is called by another move such as Metronome or Assist, it will instead use the PP of that move with the same chart applying.

The move is unaffected by modifications to the accuracy stat and evasion stat. It will not hit a Pokémon during the semi-invulnerable turn of moves such as Dig, Fly, and Dive.


The fewer PP this move has, the greater its attack power.
