Additional effects are the in-battle secondary effects of some, mainly damaging, moves that cause extra changes to the user or opponent.

Additional effects include recoil damage, stat changes, inflicting status conditions and HP draining. Some moves can also have two additional effects. For example, Flare Blitz has a chance to burn the target, but also causes recoil damage to the user.

Items and Abilities are not considered additional effects, but three Abilities affect them. Serene Grace doubles their chances of occurring when the user attacks (up to 100%), Sheer Force removes them when the user attacks for a damage bonus, and Shield Dust removes them when the user is attacked.
