Metal Sound (Japanese: きんぞくおん Metal Sound) is a non-damaging Steel-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Metal Sound lowers the target's Special Defense stat by two stages. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.

Metal Sound will become a Water-type move when used by a Pokémon with the Ability Liquid Voice. If the user is affected by Throat Chop, it will be unable to use this move for two turns.

If the user is holding a Throat Spray, the item will be consumed and the user's Special Attack stat will raise by one stage.

Metal Sound can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing Metal Claw to give extra four appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Steelium Z into Z-Metal Sound, the user's Special Attack stat rises by one stage, and can be used regardless of whether the user is affected by Throat Chop or not.
