Contest categories, also called Contest conditions (Japanese: コンディション condition), are five different categories of Contests, used in Pokémon Contests and Super Contests. The five categories are Coolness, Beauty, Cuteness, Smartness, and Toughness.
Each Pokémon move is categorized under one of these five categories, corresponding generally with the nature of the move, with certain types of moves generally becoming certain Contest categories. In addition, Berry flavors, Pokéblock colors, Poffin flavors, and Pokémon Natures are associated with certain Contest categories.
In Pokémon Contests, Pokémon with a raised Contest condition in the category of Contest entered will score higher in the primary judging. In Pokémon Super Contests, Pokémon with a raised Contest condition in the category of Contest entered will score higher in the dress-up round.
Feebas's evolution is based on its Beauty condition. Beautiful Feebas will evolve into Milotic upon leveling up. In Generation V, the Prism Scale was introduced; trading a Feebas holding a Prism Scale will also cause it to evolve into Milotic. This is due to a lack of means to increase Beauty in these games. However, beautiful Feebas transferred from games where Contest conditions can be raised to games where they cannot will still evolve into Milotic upon leveling up, because Contest conditions are still in the code of these games.
