Stun Spore (Japanese: しびれごな Numbing Powder) is a non-damaging Grass-type move introduced in Generation I.

It appears to be a paralyzing counterpart to Poison Powder and Sleep Powder, as the accuracy, Contest group, appeal, effects, Japanese names and animation are the same or very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level or in a similar pattern.

Effect

Generations I-V

Stun Spore paralyzes the target. Stun Spore cannot affect targets with Limber as their Ability.

Stun Spore can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if move Sweet Scent was used in the prior turn.

Generation VI onwards

Grass-type and Electric-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are now immune to Stun Spore.

Stun Spore can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Hex and Smelling Salts to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by a Grassium Z into Z-Stun Spore, the user's Special Defense stat raises one stage.
