(Japanese: いにしえのうた Ancient Song) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation V. It is only learned by event Meloetta through a tutor in Hiun City.


Ancient Song deals damage and has a 10% chance of putting the target to sleep. Ancient Song hits all opponents in double battles and hits all adjacent opponents in triple battles.

When used by Meloetta in battle, it will also cause it to change between its Voice and Step Formes.
