The Beautiful condition, also called Beauty (Japanese: うつくしさ Beauty), is one of the five different Contest conditions.

Contents

Characteristics

A Pokémon will have its Beautiful condition raised when fed Pokéblocks or Poffins made with dry-tasting, blue-colored Berries. Pokémon with Natures that boost Special Attack—Modest, Mild, Quiet, and Rash—get the most benefit from Berries that have a dry flavor, as a result, they are the easiest to raise for a Beauty Contest. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it can be raised by having a Pokémon groomed by Daisy Oak or the haircut brothers.

When competing in the Beautiful category, a Pokémon with an enhanced Beautiful condition will score higher in the primary judging of a Pokémon Contest, the Visual Competition of a Pokémon Super Contest, and the Introduction Round of a Pokémon Contest Spectacular. This can also be assisted with the use of the Blue Scarf. Many Fire-, Ice-, Fairy- and Water-type moves will become Beauty moves when used in Contests.

A Feebas's Beautiful condition, when raised to 170 points or more, will cause it to evolve into Milotic when it is next leveled up. This evolution method still works in games where there is no way to affect Contest conditions, so long as Feebas is transferred forward or traded with the requirement already met. The Prism Scale was introduced as an alternate way for Feebas to evolve, however.

During a Beauty Contest, the audience will react as follows:

Move performed Audience reaction
Cool move Indifference
Beautiful move Excitement
Cute move Indifference
Clever move Discontent
Tough move Discontent

Awards

At the end of a Beauty Contest, the winning Pokémon will receive a Contest Ribbon. Additionally, in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, Coordinators are awarded special Accessories the first time they win the Contest. Different Ribbons and Accessories are awarded for winning in each of the four ranks. Finally, visiting Mr. Goods after winning the Master Rank contest will earn the players a trophy.
