Sweet Scent (Japanese: あまいかおり Sweet Scent) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM12 in Generation II.

Effect

In battle

Generation II-V

Sweet Scent lowers the target's evasion by one stage.

In a Double Battle, Sweet Scent hits both opponents. In a Triple Battle, Sweet Scent will only hit opposing adjacent Pokémon.

Generation VI

Sweet Scent now lowers the target's evasion by two stages.

Outside of battle

Generation II-III

Sweet Scent causes wild Pokémon to appear when used as a field move, provided the player is standing in an area where wild Pokémon would normally appear. Sweet Scent will cause a wild encounter even if Repel is in effect.

Generation IV-V

Sweet Scent can only be used under clear weather conditions. All other effects remain the same.

Generation VI

Sweet Scent will initiate a Horde Encounter if horde battles can take place in the location it is used. Otherwise, a normal wild encounter will be triggered. All other effects remain the same.

Trivia

  • Using Sweet Scent (or Honey) inside a shop or Poké Mart in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl may activate a glitch causing the descriptive text of purchasable items to vanish until the player leaves the shop, known as the honey shop glitch.
  • Despite its name, it will still attract Pokémon who do not like sweet flavors.
