Contest condition

018Pidgeot.png It has been suggested that this article be moved to Condition.
Please discuss whether or not to move it on its talk page.


A Pokémon's condition (Japanese: コンディション condition) is made up of stats that exist for use in Pokémon Contests, Super Contests, and Contest Spectaculars. There are five different condition stats; Coolness, Beauty, Cuteness, Cleverness, and Toughness.

For each of these five conditions, there are individual contest categories where Pokémon are judged by how developed they are in the relevant stat. In order to improve a condition stat, Pokémon can be given Pokéblocks and Poffins made from Berries.


A Pokémon with an enhanced condition stat will score higher when competing in a contest with the same title as that condition. A Pokémon's condition will be judged in the following rounds:

This can also be assisted with the use of scarves. A Pokémon holding a scarf corresponding to the category of the contest entered will gain bonus points in the final score.

Every move that a Pokémon can learn is associated with one of the five conditions, and the audience reaction to a move's condition influences the excitement in the hall, as shown below.

Cleverness Clever icon.png Cute icon.png and Tough icon.png Beautiful icon.png and Cool icon.png

The audience reaction affects the amount of points an appeal earns. If a move excites the audience, the Pokémon will gain one extra point, but if a move bores the audience, the Pokémon will lose one of its points. The audience indifference to a move will not affect the excitement in the hall nor the Pokémon's score.

Checking condition

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, a Pokémon's condition is viewable from the PokéNav. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, as well as in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, condition stats are shown in the Pokémon's Summary screen.

Feebas's evolution

See also: Feebas and Milotic

If Feebas's Beauty condition is 170 points or more, it will evolve into Milotic when it is leveled up. Prior to the introduction of the Prism Scale in Generation V, this was the only way to evolve Feebas; however, even in games that include the Prism Scale, Feebas can evolve by level up if its Beauty condition is high enough.


Each Berry flavor and color represent a specific condition stat, as shown below.

Condition Flavor Color Enhancement
Coolness Spicy Red Attack
Beauty Dry Blue Special Attack
Cuteness Sweet Pink Speed
Cleverness Bitter Green Special Defense
Toughness Sour Yellow Defense


In a similar fashion to its effect on battle stats, a Pokémon's Nature has an effect on the ability to raise a specific condition stat, as shown below.
