Synchronoise is a psychic-type charged move in Pokemon GO.

Niantic Labs implemented an entire roster of unique quick and charged moves for players to take advantage of in Pokemon GO. Every type in the game has a set of both categories that may be mixed and matched on eligible Pokemon according to a trainer's desire. Some are known for their strength in raids while others are sought after for their swift build-up in trainer battles.

Here's everything there is to know about the psychic move, Synchronoise.

Synchronoise Pokemon GO Move Details

Synchronoise is a psychic-type charged move with two separate charges in Pokemon GO. Originally released in August 2019, there are only three Pokemon eligible to learn it at all: Golduck, Gallade, and Gardevoir. Golduck may know the move naturally while Gardvoir and Gallade must be taught it via Elite TM. However, only Gardvoir and Gallade will benefit from Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) damage using Synchronoise.

As with any psychic move, it is super effective against fighting and poison-types while being weak against steel and other pyshic-types. It is completely ineffective against dark-types. Synchronoise's stats include:

  • Base Damage: 80
  • Energy: 50
  • Duration: 0.85 seconds
  • Cooldown: 2.6 seconds
  • Damage Per Second: 30.8/36.9
  • Damage Per Energy: 1.6

This move was originally introduced in the main series games alongside Generation V, but has since been removed with Generation VIII. Its description was, "Using an odd shock wave, the user inflicts damage on any Pokémon of the same type in the area around it."
