Taunt (Japanese: ちょうはつ Taunt) is a non-damaging Dark-type move introduced in Generation III. It has been TM12 since Generation III.

Effect

Generation III

Taunt makes the afflicted Pokémon unable to use status moves. The effect lasts two turns or until the subject is switched out. Unlike most status moves, Taunt will affect a target with a substitute. On the turn that Taunt is used, if the Pokémon using Taunt goes before the target and the target selected a status move that turn, the target's move will fail. If a Pokémon that only knows status moves is taunted, or is taunted after using a status move and holding a Choice item, then it will be forced to use Struggle.

Generation IV

The duration of Taunt is now between two and four turns.

Taunt can now be copied by Mirror Move.

Generation V

The duration of Taunt is now three turns.

Taunt can now be reflected with Magic Coat and no longer affects Me First.

Generation VI

Taunt no longer works on Pokémon with Oblivious or those under the protection of Aroma Veil.

Generation VII

If powered up by a Darkinium Z into Z-Taunt, the user's Attack raises one stage.
