Sky Attack is a two-turn offensive Flying-type move.

Sky Attack displays "User became cloaked in a harsh light!". Once selected, the move stops the user from switching out until it is disrupted or fully executed. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Sky Attack. If it isn't fully executed, PP will not be deducted from it. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user is glowing, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using Sky Attack (or fail if it can't).

As of 1.0.4, it can be taught for 4 Red Shards by the Physical Move Tutor. In 1.0.3, it could be taught by the Ultimate Move Tutor of Tsukinami Village for four of each shard.
