Effect

Inflicts regular damage. User flies high into the air for one turn, becoming immune to attack, and hits on the second turn.

During the immune turn, Gust, Hurricane, Sky Uppercut, Smack Down, Thunder, Twister, and Whirlwind still hit the user normally. Gust and Twister also have double power against the user.

The damage from Hail and Sandstorm still applies during the immune turn.

The user may be hit during its immune turn if under the effect of Lock-On, Mind Reader, or No Guard.

This move cannot be used while Gravity is in effect.

This move cannot be selected by Sleep Talk.

Meta

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

History

Before Diamond, Pearl
Has 70 power.
Before Gold, Silver

Swift can hit the user while in the air, and no other moves can. Due to a bug, if the user fails to carry out the move's second turn, e.g. due to paralysis, it remains in the air until it switches out or uses Fly again successfully. It can act as if it were on the ground in the meantime, but moves still miss it.
