Psywave (Japanese: サイコウェーブ Psychowave) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move.
Psywave inflicts a random amount of damage, varying between 0.5× and 1.5× the user's level. The damage can be calculated using the following formula, where X is a randomly generated number between 0 and 10:
(X + 5) × (User's level / 10)
The damage is always rounded down; however, Psywave will always deal at least 1 HP of damage.
Though it is a Psychic move, Psywave deals typeless damage, taking neither weakness nor resistance into account, and not being affected by STAB, though it still cannot hit Dark-type Pokémon without using Miracle Eye.
