Rivalry (Japanese: とうそうしん Belligerence) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV.
When a Pokémon with Rivalry uses an attack, the attack's power is raised by 25% if the target and the user have the same gender, and is reduced by 25% if the target and the user have opposite genders. If the user or target is genderless, the move's power is unaffected.
Unless the Pokémon is genderless, Rivalry powers up confusion damage.
