Relic Song (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 Castelia City, and cannot be selected by Metronome. Since Meloetta has not yet been distributed, this move is currently unavailable.


Relic Song deals damage and has a 10% chance of putting the target to sleep. Relic 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 Aria and Pirouette Formes.


Games Description
BW The user sings an ancient song and attacks by appealing to the hearts of those listening. It may also induce sleep.


By move tutor

In Pokémon Black and White, a man in Café Sonata will make an event Meloetta remember the move, which, story-wise, it had forgotten.
