Hex (Japanese: たたりめ Evil Eye) is a damage-dealing Ghost-type move introduced in Generation V. It is TM77 in Generation VIII.

Effect

Generation V

Hex's base power is 50 and will double to 100 when the target is affected by a non-volatile status condition.

Hex's base power was increased to 65 and will double to 130.

Hex can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, giving the user extra three appeal points if a status-inducing status move (except Psycho Shift and Rest) or a certain damaging move (Force Palm, Inferno, Nuzzle or Zap Cannon) was used in the prior turn.
