Cute Charm (Japanese: メロメロボディ Mad Love Body) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Thirteen Pokémon can have this Ability.

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 of the opposite gender will become infatuated, making it unable to attack 50% of the time.

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onwards, if a Pokémon with Cute Charm is first in the party, the chance of encountering a Pokémon of the opposite gender is 66.7%, regardless of gender ratios. This does not affect a swarming Pokémon species or Pokémon found in Hidden Grottos.
