Affected moves now receive a 20% power boost.

Affected moves

The table below lists the moves affected by Pixilate, as well as the Pokémon that can have Pixilate and learn those moves.

Although the following moves are affected by the Ability, they currently cannot be learned by any Pokémon with Pixilate. They may, however, be called via Metronome, Mirror Move, Copycat, or Mimic, or be used by a Pokémon that gained Pixilate by an Ability like Trace or Receiver or a move such as Skill Swap or Role Play.
