I guess I'd also like to know if it stops any of the other priority boosting abilities too, but Prankster mainly.

I'm pretty sure no.

It's a complicated situation. It blocks some, but not all priority associated with Prankster.

Say I've got a Sableye up against a Tapu Lele (ahaha, what a wonderful concept). If I have Prankster, my Sableye could use Toxic or Will-O-Wisp on Lele, but it would fail because of the Terrain. However, I could get away with using something like Recover or Calm Mind with advanced priority because it doesn't target the opponent.

Based on this, Comfey cannot use a Triage Draining Kiss, nor can Talonflame use Gale Wings Flying moves, like Brave Bird.

These moves would not be blocked by Prankster in Psychic Terrain, except for Perish Song, Flower Shield, and Rototiller. Note that it's impossible to have some of these moves on a Pokemon that gets Prankster.

For more info, see Psychic Terrain's Bulbapedia page.

i know this is old but i got this idea... does it affect prankster copycat? for lets say lagging tail dig copycat prankster riolu?
"Lagging Tail Dig Copycat Riolu"? I'm afraid I don't follow, can you be more specific?
I believe they mean a Riolu holding a Lagging Tail using Copycat and copying Dig.
i guess im gonna have to build a team to try it, it goes like this that riolu and a terrain setter with follow me if the enemy team have eq or something to hit you underground use magnet rise and follow me if not just dig and follow me lagging tail guarantees youre last, second turn if its still alive preserve the terrain setter, and copycat prankster makes copy cat goes first so your underground from the start and the second turn youre guaranteed last so immune to pretty much everything rince and repeat , also maybe carry gravity in another mon for flying types
