Most abilities have ways of balancing themselves. This one only affects first attack after switching in. Unless you have 2 pokemon with it, and both use a move that makes them switch out (volt switch, u-turn), it can't be abused. Is overpowered if:

1. Used with (at least) 2 pokemon with the ability.
2. The pokemon with it can use a move that deals damage and switches out.
3. The user is a fast, moderate damage pokemon.
4. Switching move is normally effective/super-effective against target.

If you manage be be in a a battle and you/your opponent meet the criteria, then it's overpowered. But what you have to go through for this to be OP is what balances it.

so if this mom had a bunch of offspring with this ability, would they all stack up and give the mom a ton of power?

So basically an ability that acts like Gem item.

Great for revenge killing or getting a nice advantage in battle.
**** you SE for trolling us with that TWEWY port. I hate you.

depends on which mons get it

a drawback would be it makes the opponent's first move predictable. u know they'll attack

This ability + Normal Gem + Normal type pokemon with high attack stat + Fake Out = opponent's lead pokemon (that isn't Rock/Steel/Ghost) dead before it can do anything.

This is essentially the same as a Choice Band when used for the first turn...

Give it to things like Technician Ambipom with Choice Scarf + Fakeout or Technician Scizor with Choice Band + Bullet Punch and the metagame might break...
