Effects

If the opponent is readying a direct attack, the user of Me First will try to copy it and attack with 50% more power. The move only works if the user is faster than the opponent or otherwise able to move first (for example a Quick Claw activating).

Me First cannot copy Sucker Punch or Fake Out, nor by its definition above, any high priority move such as ExtremeSpeed. However it can copy a multi-turn move from any of its turns.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Me First turns into Z-Me First and raises Speed two stages, in addition to its usual effect as above.
