Bounce (Japanese: とびはねる Bounce) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move. It is a tutor move taught by a Bouncer in the top floor of Flight School in Beehive City for 3000.
The user bounces up high on the first turn, avoiding most moves. On the second turn, the user slams down onto the target, inflicting damage with a 30% chance of paralyzing it.
Gust, Twister, Thunder, Sky Uppercut, and Hurricane have normal accuracy against a mid-air Pokémon, gaining doubled power. The user may also be hit in mid-air if it was previously targeted by Lock-On or Mind Reader, or if it is attacked by a Pokémon with No Guard or has No Guard itself.
Wild Pokémon cannot be caught during the semi-invulnerable stage of Bounce.
If a Power Herb is held by the user, Bounce can be executed in one turn.
| The user bounces up high, then drops on the target on the second turn. It may also leave the target with paralysis.
