Sticky Web (Japanese: ねばねばネット Sticky Net) is a non-damaging Bug-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Sticky Web sets an entry hazard around the opposing Pokémon, which lowers their Speed stat by one stage upon switching in. It doesn't affect Flying-type Pokémon, Pokémon with the Levitate Ability, or Pokémon holding an Air Balloon.

Pokémon with the Ability Clear Body and White Smoke will not have their Speed lowered, and Pokémon with the Ability Contrary will instead have their Speed raised by one stage. Sticky Web triggers the effects of the Abilities Defiant and Competitive.

The moves Rapid Spin and Defog remove the effect of Sticky Web; Rapid Spin removes Sticky Web set around the user, while Defog removes Sticky Web set on both sides.

Sticky Web can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, giving the user an extra three appeal points if String Shot was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Buginium Z into Z-Sticky Web, the user's Speed stat rises one stage.


Games Description
The user weaves a sticky net around the opposing team, which lowers their Speed stat upon switching into battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Unlike the other entry hazards present from the core series games, Sticky Web does not produce a trap on the dungeon floor. It instead targets the enemy in front and reduces their Travel Speed. It also makes the enemy's held item sticky. If a teammate is hit by this move, a random item in the Bag or Toolbox becomes sticky.


Games Description
SMD It lowers an enemy's Travel Speed for a while and makes its item sticky.*
It reduces the enemy's Travel Speed. If the enemy is holding an item, it also makes the enemy's item sticky.*
