Substitute (Japanese: みがわりScapegoat) is a non-damaging Normal-type move.
Decreasing its HP by 25% (rounded down) of its maximum HP, the user creates a substitute with 1 HP more than the amount of HP lost by the user. If the user's current HP is less than 25% (rounded down) of its maximum HP, Substitute fails. If the user's current HP is exactly equal to 25% (rounded down) of its maximum HP, it will faint upon creating the substitute.The substitute always has the same type and stats as the Pokémon that created it currently has.
The user creates a decoy using one-quarter of its full HP.
