Effect

In battle

Hustle increases the user's Attack stat by 50%, but lowers the accuracy of the user's physical moves by 20%. Special moves and status moves are unaffected by Hustle.

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onwards, if a Pokémon with Hustle is in the first place in the party (even if fainted), there's a 50% chance that a Pokémon will be forced to the upper bound of their encounter level range. It shares this effect with Pressure and Vital Spirit.
