Psycho Shift is a non offensive Psychic-type move.

Psycho Shift cures any non-volatile status condition the user has and afflicts the target with it. It will not transfer volatile status conditions, such as confusion. It will fail if the target is immune to the status condition (such as via type, Ability, Safeguard, or by already having a status condition).

If a badly poisoned Pokémon uses Psycho Shift, its target will be badly poisoned. Psycho Shift can be used to transfer sleep when used via Sleep Talk. As there is no way to act while frozen, Psycho Shift cannot transfer this condition.

Psycho Shift will inflict the status condition on the target, then cure the user. Therefore, if Psycho Shift is used on a Pokémon with Synchronize, the user of Psycho Shift will already be afflicted with a status condition when Synchronize activates.
