Assist (Japanese: ねこのて Cat's Paw) is a non-damaging Normal-type move.

Effect

Assist randomly selects one of the moves known by the user's party allies (including fainted Pokémon) and executes it. A move called up by Assist counts as the last move used. A Pokémon will be able to use a move that is disabled in its own moveset if called via Assist. If there are no moves that can be called in the party, the move will fail.

Assist will not call itself or a number of other moves (usually ones that couldn't work if used in this way).

Description

Description
The user hurriedly and randomly uses a move among those known by other Pokémon in the party.
