From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
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 stats by one stage. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target 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.
Noble Roar 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.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Noble Roar, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage, and can be used regardless of whether the user is affected by Throat Chop or not.
| Letting out a noble roar, the user intimidates the target and lowers its Attack and Sp. Atk stats.
