Growth (Japanese: せいちょう Growth) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generation I

Growth increases the user's Special stat by one stage.

Generations II to IV

Growth instead increases the user's Special Attack stat by one stage.

Growth can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with certain moves (Absorb, Bullet Seed, Frenzy Plant, Giga Drain, Leech Seed, Magical Leaf, Mega Drain, Petal Dance, Razor Leaf, SolarBeam and Vine Whip) having their base appeal points doubled if they are used in the next turn.

Generation V

Growth now increases Attack by one stage in addition to increasing Special Attack by one stage. In harsh sunlight, Growth raises Attack and Special Attack by two stages each.

Generation VI onwards

Growth's PP is changed from 40 to 20.

Growth can be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if the move Sunny Day was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Growth, the user's Special Attack stat raises one additional stage.
