From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Growth (Japanese: せいちょう Growth) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation I.
Growth increases the user's Special stat by one stage. Growth will do nothing if the user's Special has reached six stages or a value of 999. The effect of Growth is ignored by critical hits.
Generation II to Generation IV
The effects of Growth are the same as the previous generation, however, it increases user's Special Attack stat instead.
Growth now increases Attack by one stage in addition to increasing Special Attack by one stage. In intense sunlight, Growth raises Attack and Special Attack by two stages each.

- Despite this move being a Template:Type2 move, no Normal-type Pokémon can learn it, apart from Eevee's special NYPC event in Gen II and Smeargle.
