The Cool condition, also called Coolness (Japanese: かっこよさ Coolness), is one of the five different Contest conditions.
A Pokémon will have its Cool condition raised when fed Pokéblocks or Poffins made with spicy-tasting, red-colored Berries. Pokémon with Natures that boost Attack—Lonely, Brave, Adamant, and Naughty—get the most benefit from Berries that have a spicy flavor, as a result, they are the easiest to raise for a Coolness Contest.
When competing in the Cool category, a Pokémon with an enhanced Coolness will score higher in the primary judging of a Pokémon Contest, the Visual Competition of a Pokémon Super Contest, and the Introduction Round of a Pokémon Contest Spectacular. This can also be assisted with the use of the Red Scarf. Many Fighting-, Flying-, Electric-,Steel- and Dragon-type moves will become Cool moves when used in Contests, but moves from other types may display Coolness as well.
During a Coolness Contest, the audience will react as follows:
At the end of a Coolness Contest, the winning Pokémon will receive a Contest Ribbon. Additionally, in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Coordinators are awarded special Accessories the first time they win the Contest. Different Ribbons and Accessories are awarded for winning in each of the four ranks. Finally, visiting Mr. Goods after winning the Master Rank contest will earn the players a trophy.
In Generation III there are 83 moves (or 23.4% of all moves) in Cool category.
Sinnoh Super Contests
In Generation IV there are 110 moves (or 23.6% of all moves) in Cool category.
Hoenn Contest Spectaculars
In Generation VI there are 132 moves (or 21.3% of all moves) in Cool category. 18 of old moves had their category changed into Cool, 22 had their category changed from Cool into other.
- While the color representing Coolness is described to be red in-text, its actual color is the same shade of orange that represents the Fire type.
