Effects

Snatch moves first and steals the effects of the next status move used by the opponent(s) in that turn. If two or more Pokemon use Snatch, the slowest of the Pokemon will gain the effect, because the fastest Pokemon will steal the move first, then the next slowest will steal the move from the snatcher and so on.
