Effects

Teeter Dance causes all adjacent Pokémon to become confused. In single battles this is simply the opponent; in double/triple battles it includes all adjacent opponents and teammate(s).

Confused Pokémon have a 50% chance of hurting themselves each turn, for 1-4 turns. The damage received is as if the Pokémon attacks itself with a typeless 40 base power Physical attack.

Pokémon with the ability Own Tempo or those behind a Substitute cannot be confused.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Normalium Z and uses its Z-Power, Teeter Dance turns into Z-Teeter Dance and raises Special Attack one stage, in addition to its usual effect as above.
