Gets the Pokémon pumped up. Helps prevent nervousness, too.

Rototiller (Japanese: たがやす Plow) is a non-damaging Ground-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Rototiller raises the Attack and Special Attack stats of all Grass-type Pokémon in the battle by one stage. It does not affect Flying-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Levitate, Pokémon holding an Air Balloon or Pokémon under the effects of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis, unless the Pokémon is also under the effects of Gravity, Smack Down, Ingrain or Thousand Arrows, or if the Pokémon is holding an Iron Ball. The move will fail if there are no Grass-type Pokémon present on the battlefield.


Games Description
Tilling the soil, the user makes it easier for plants to grow. This raises the Attack and Sp. Atk stats of Grass-type Pokémon.
