Noble Roar (Japanese: おたけび War Cry) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation VI. Prior to Generation VII, it was the signature move of Litleo and Pyroar.


Noble Roar lowers the target's Attack and Special Attack by one stage. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Noble Roar, the user's Defense stat raises one stage.


Games Description
Letting out a noble roar, the user intimidates the target and lowers its Attack and Sp. Atk stats.
