Memento (Japanese: おきみやげ Memento) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Memento causes the user to faint and in return lowers the Attack and Special Attack stat of the target by two stages each. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

The user will not faint if Memento fails, such as when blocked by Protect or Substitute or if it has no target. However, the user will faint even if the target does not have its stats lowered, such as if the target has the Ability Clear Body or is protected by Mist.
