From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Endure (Japanese: こらえる Endure) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM20 in Generation II and was TM58 in Generation IV.
Generation II - IV
Endure allows the user to survive any attack that would cause it to faint, leaving the user with 1 HP. Using Endure, Detect, or Protect consecutively decreases the chance of success by 50% each use, whether it is successful or not. Endure can be used by Pokémon with only 1 HP. Since the effects of Endure last for a full turn, Endure can protect the user from fainting from multiple attacks in one turn.
Endure now has a 50% chance of success on the current turn if Endure, Detect, Protect, Quick Guard, or Wide Guard was used successfully on the previous turn. Otherwise, it is exactly the same as Generation II - IV.

- Endure is one of two moves to lose its TM status twice. The other is Sleep Talk.
- Coincidentally, both moves are Normal-type moves introduced in Generation II.
- Also, both can be taught to all Pokémon that can learn TMs.
- Additionally, both moves were added as move tutors in Pokémon Emerald before regaining their TM status in Generation IV, but Sleep Talk regained its move tutor status in Black 2 and White 2, while Endure did not.
