Grass Pledge (Japanese: くさのちかい Grass Oath) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation V.


Grass Pledge inflicts regular damage, with double damage and an additional effect when combined with Fire Pledge or Water Pledge in Double or Triple Battles. The combined move uses the second user who used a pledge to calculate damage.

If it and Water Pledge are used in the same turn, it will decrease the speed of all foes by half for four turns.

If it and Fire Pledge are used in the same turn, it will come out as Fire Pledge, and causes all foes to take damage equal to 1/8 of their maximum HP at the end of every turn for four turns.

Similar to Fire Pledge and Water Pledge, Grass Pledge is unaffected by Grass Gem (and will not consume it).


Games Description
A column of grass hits opposing Pokémon. When used with its water equivalent, its damage increases into a vast swamp.


By Move Tutor

Grass-type starter Pokémon and their evolutions are the only Pokémon who can learn this move.
