Lovely Kiss (Japanese: あくまのキッス Demon's Kiss) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation I. It appears to be a sleep counterpart to Sweet Kiss. It is the signature move of Jynx.

Effect

Generations I and II

Lovely Kiss causes the target to fall asleep.

Generation III

Targets with Insomnia or Vital Spirit as their Ability are unaffected by Lovely Kiss.

Generation VI onward

Targets with Sweet Veil as their Ability are also unaffected by Lovely Kiss.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Lovely Kiss, the user's Speed stat raises one stage.

Trivia

  • Its Japanese name correlates with its animations in the Generation II and III games in which a demon floats down from the top of the screen and kisses the opponent.
    • A similar situation occurs with Sweet Kiss, which stays this way in later generations.
