Effects

Trick-or-Treat adds the Ghost type to the target. If the target is dual-typed they essentially become a triple-typed Pokémon.

It fails if one of the Pokémon's types is already Ghost. If the target is under the effect of Forest's Curse the Grass type is replaced by Ghost.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Ghostium Z and uses its Z-Power, Trick-or-Treat turns into Z-Trick-or-Treat and raises all stats one stage each, in addition to its usual effect as above.
