Effects

Acupressure raises a random stat – Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Attack, Special Defense, Accuracy or Evasion – by two stages. It will always choose a stat that is not already maximized. Stats can be raised to a maximum of +6 stages each. Acupressure is unlike other status moves in that it can be targeted at itself or an adjacent teammate. It cannot be used on an ally if they are behind a Substitute, but the user can apply Acupressure to itself if behind a Substitute.
