Pressure increases the foe's PP usage by one for every successful hit. This Ability works even if the Pokémon is immune to the attack's type, for example, using Earthquake against a Template:Type2 Pokémon.
Starting in Generation IV, Pressure also affects ally Pokémon in a double battle when using moves such as Earthquake, Surf, Lava Plume, Discharge or any other move which affect all Pokémon engaged in battle.
As of Generation IV, one is alerted to the presence of Pressure by the message "<name> is exerting its Pressure!"
