Deals damage, then switches the user out. The user will not be switched out if the user is the only Pokémon in the party able to battle, if Volt Switch misses, if using Volt Switch ends the battle, if the foe's Ability prevents damage from Volt Switch, or if the opponent is Ground type. Can be used to switch out of Ingrain, Arena Trap, Magnet Pull, Shadow Tag, Mean Look, Spider Web, or Block. Will not force the user to switch out if the user is holding a Red Card or the target is holding an Eject Button. If the foe uses Pursuit on the same turn Volt Switch is used, it will deal double damage if the foe is slower than the user.
