Charm (Japanese: あまえる Spoiled Pout) is a non-damaging Fairy-type move introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type move. In Generation VIII, it is TM29.

Effect

Generations II to V

Charm is a Normal-type move. It lowers the Attack stat of the target by two stages.

Charm can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing certain moves (Flatter, Growl, Rest, Sweet Kiss and Tail Whip) to gain two extra appeal points if used in the next turn.

Generation VI onward

Charm is now a Fairy-type move. Its effects remain the same.

If powered up by a Fairium Z into Z-Charm, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.

Trivia

  • Charm is one of the four moves from Generation II to have its type changed in a later generation, the others being Curse, Moonlight, and Sweet Kiss.
  • In Gold and Silver, Bulbasaur and Oddish are programmed to learn Charm as an Egg move, but there was no legitimate father to pass down this move. In Generations III and IV, both can inherit the move from the Shroomish evolutionary line by chain breeding; from Generation V onward, both can get this move directly from Cottonee.
    • A similar situation occurs for Snorlax in Gold and Silver. In Generation III and IV, Snorlax was able to inherit the move from the Bulbasaur line by chain breeding; from Generation VI onward, Snorlax was able to inherit the move directly from the Tyrunt line.
  • Charm is the only Fairy type Fast Attack in Pokémon GO.
