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

Hone Claws (Japanese: つめとぎ Claw Sharpen) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation V. It was TM01 in Generations V and VI.

Effect

Hone Claws raises the user's Attack and accuracy by one stage each.

Hone Claws can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Baton Pass and Stored Power to give the user an extra three appeal points if they are used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Hone Claws, the user's Attack stat rises by another stage.
