Effect

User's type changes to the type of one of its moves, selected at random. Hidden Power and Weather Ball are treated as Normal. Only moves with a different type are eligible, and Curse is never eligible. If the user has no suitable moves, this move will fail.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
