Effects

Autotomize raises the user's Speed by two stages and halves its weight. Stats can be raised to a maximum of +6 stages each.

Decreasing weight affects these moves:

  • Grass Knot (lower damage when receiving)
  • Heat Crash (lower damage when attacking, higher damage when receiving)
  • Heavy Slam (lower damage when attacking, higher damage when receiving)
  • Low Kick (lower damage when receiving)

The effect of the weight change cannot be Baton-Passed (but the Speed change is passed as normal).

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Steelium Z and uses its Z-Power, Autotomize turns into Z-Autotomize and eliminates any stat drops applied to the user, in addition to its usual effect as above.
