Odor Sleuth (Japanese: かぎわける Find Scent) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generation III

Odor Sleuth causes all accuracy checks against the target to ignore any changes to the target's evasion stat stages. If Odor Sleuth's target is a Ghost-type Pokémon, it also removes the target's immunity to Fighting-type and Normal-type moves. Odor Sleuth's effect ends when the target switches out.

Odor Sleuth has an accuracy of 100%.

Generation IV

Odor Sleuth now only causes accuracy checks against the target to ignore changes to its evasion stat stages if its evasion stat stage is greater than 0.

Odor Sleuth now also bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Generation V onward

Odor Sleuth can now be reflected with Magic Coat.

Odor Sleuth will now fail if used against a Pokémon already under its effect.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Odor Sleuth, the user's Attack raises one stage.

It then opens its mouth and fires a white orb of energy surrounded by a clear bubble of energy and two white rings around it from its mouth at the ground.
