From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Grudge (Japanese: おんねん Grudge) is a non-damaging Ghost-type move introduced in Generation III.
When Grudge is used, if the user faints as the direct result of an attack, the move which causes the user to faint will lose all of its PP. This move's effect only works if the user faints before making another move. Grudge does not activate for damage that occurs at the end of the turn, including damage from Leech Seed, Toxic, Sandstorm, Hail, and Future Sight.
If powered up by a Ghostium Z into Z-Grudge, all of the opponent's moves will target the user for the rest of the turn, if possible.
Grudge can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if move Curse was used in the prior turn. It is also part of a Contest Spectacular combination with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if any of the moves Encore, Taunt or Torment was used in the prior turn.
|| If the user faints, deletes the PP of the final move.
|| If the user faints, deletes all PP of foe's last move.
|| If the user faints, this move deletes the PP of the move that finished it.
|| If the user faints, the user's grudge fully depletes the PP of the foe's move that knocked it out.
| If the user faints, the user's grudge fully depletes the PP of the opponent's move that knocked it out.
In other games
|| The user gains the Grudge status. If the user is defeated, it zeroes the PP of the move last used by the foe.
|| It halves your HP, which makes you hold a grudge!*|
You'll halve your HP and hold a grudge! If you're attacked, you'll cut the PP of the attacker's move to 0. The status will go away after a while.*

- This move originated as a TCG attack.
- In Generation III, the status screen erroneously states that the move has 100% accuracy, even though it targets the user (thus it ignores accuracy and evasion checks).
