TM47 Low Sweep is a Physical Fighting-type move that also lowers the target’s Speed by one stage.
So in the same way how you can raise each stat up to six times, you can also lower it up to a maximum of six times.
Here’s how much each stage modifies your opponent’s Speed stat:
Because of its mediocre base power, using Low Sweep on an offensive Pokémon may not be ideal. You’re better off with stronger moves, like Close Combat or Superpower.
Since Low Sweep’s effect is what makes it a decent move, you can have utility or defensive Pokémon learn the move instead.
Lowering the Speed of your opponent’s offensive threats might prevent them from sweeping your entire team.
Using Low Sweep can also be more effective in Double Battles, and using it first against a fast Pokémon might change up the turn order, giving you a chance to follow up with another attack with your second Pokémon.
