Nasty Plot (Japanese: わるだくみ Sinister Plot) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation IV. It is TR68 in Pokémon Sword and Shield and TM63 in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Effect

Nasty Plot raises the user's Special Attack stat by two stages.

Nasty Plot is a part of Contest Spectacular combination and using it will cause Baton Pass and Stored Power to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Nasty Plot, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.

Generation VIII

In Sword, Shield, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl, Nasty Plot works identically to how it did in previous generations.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Nasty Plot raises the user's offensive stats for five turns. It also increases the user's action speed.
