Switcheroo is an item-switching Dark-type move.

The user switches held items with the target. It fails if:

  • Neither Pokémon has a held item
  • Either Pokémon is holding Mail
  • The target is behind a substitute
  • The user or the target is holding a Mega Stone that could allow either Pokémon to Mega Evolve.

Switcheroo doesn't switch a Trainer's Pokémon's items permanently. However, items switched in wild battles are permanently switched.
