Memento (Japanese: おきみやげ Memento) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generation III

Memento causes the user to faint and in return lowers the Attack and Special Attack stat of the target by two stages each.

Memento bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, even if the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move.

The user will always faint even if it is blocked by a protection move. The user will also faint even if Memento fails (such as if it is blocked by a substitute) or if it is unable to affect the target's stats (such as due to Clear Body or Mist), but the user will not faint if Memento is unable to affect the target's stats due to both stats already being at -6.

Generation IV onward

Memento no longer bypasses accuracy checks, and has an accuracy of 100.

The user will not faint if Memento fails (such as if it has no target or is blocked by a substitute), if the target is immune (such as due to being Dark-type and Memento's priority is boosted by the user's Prankster in Generation VII onward), or if it is blocked by a protection move. However, the user will faint if Memento is unable to affect the target's stats but still hits (such as due to Clear Body or if both stats are already at -6).

Memento can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining an extra three appeal points if any of the moves Block, Mean Look or Spider Web was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Memento, if a Pokémon is switched in to replace the user the same turn, that Pokémon has its HP fully restored (even if Z-Memento was not used successfully after gaining its Z-Power effect). Due to a glitch, this effect is not applied in version 1.0 of Sun and Moon.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Memento targets all enemies in the room and reduces their Attack and Sp. Atk. The move then cuts the user's HP to 1 and randomly warps the user to somewhere else on the floor (if possible). In the Rescue Team and Explorers series, the Attack and Sp. Atk are cut to ¼ of the original value, with this reduction being separate from stat stages. This characteristic is shared with Aurora Beam and Charm. The reduction can be applied multiple times, up to 1/128.

From Gates to Infinity onward, Memento reduces the Attack and Sp. Atk stat by two stages instead.
