Effects

The user of Bide stores energy for 2 turns. At the end of the second turn the Pokémon unleashes energy, dealing twice the HP damage it received.

Bide deals fixed, typeless damage, so will hit Ghost-type Pokémon. It also ignores changes to the Accuracy and Evasion stats and can hit Pokémon in the invulnerable stage of Bounce, Dig, Dive, Fly, Shadow Force or Sky Drop.

In double and triple battles, Bide hits the last Pokémon to attack the user (including teammates).

Changes

In Generations 1-3, Bide is not an increased priority move. It also stores energy for 2-3 turns.

In Generations 2-3, Bide does not hit Ghost-type Pokémon.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Bide turns into Breakneck Blitz and has base power 100.
