Effect

In Battle

The user applies pressure to stress points, sharply boosting one of its stats.

Acupressure randomly chooses one of the user's stats (Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed, Accuracy, or Evasion) and raises it by 2. Acupressure fails if the user or target is under the effects of Substitute.

In a double battle, Acupressure may also raise a randomly selected stat of one of its teammates.
