Cute Charm (Japanese: メロメロボディ Intoxicating Body) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Nine Pokémon have this ability, all of which are Template:Type2.

Effect

In battle

When a Pokémon with Cute Charm is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the opponent will become infatuated, making it unable to attack most of the time.

Outside of battle

If the Pokémon with Cute Charm is first in the party, the chance of encountering a Pokémon of the opposite gender is 67%, regardless of gender ratios. This does not affect the swarming Pokémon species.
