Hone Claws (Japanese: つめとぎ Claw Sharpen) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TM01 in Generations V and VI.
Hone Claws raises the user's Attack and accuracy by one stage each.
If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Hone Claws, the user's Attack stat raises another stage.
| The user sharpens its claws to boost its Attack stat and accuracy.
In other generations
- Hone Claws, along with Coil, are the only moves that always raise the accuracy stat.
- Hone Claws is the only move to be taught by TM01 that does not involve punching and the only one that does not deal damage.
- Hone Claws is the first Generation V move in index number order.
