Charm (Japanese: あまえる Spoiled Pout) is a non-damaging Fairy-type move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type move.

Contents

Effect

Generation II to V

Charm is a Normal-type move. It lowers the Attack stat of the target by two stages.

Charm can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing certain moves (Flatter, Growl, Rest, Sweet Kiss and Tail Whip) to gain two extra appeal points if used in the next turn.

Generation VI onwards

Charm is now a Fairy-type move. Its effects remain the same.

If powered up by a Fairium Z into Z-Charm, the user's Defense stat raises one stage.
