Minimize raises the user's evasion stat by one stage and replaces the user's regular image with a tiny, generic image until the user faints or is switched out, or the battle ends.
Generations III and IV
Pokémon that have used Minimize no longer have their sprite replaced with a tiny generic image.
Minimize now raises the user's evasion by two stages, instead of one.
Minimize's PP changed from 20 to 10.
If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Minimize, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.
Vulnerability to moves
Specific moves will hit with double power (Generation II and III) or have their damage doubled (Generation IV onward). Additionally, from Generation VI onward, these moves also bypass accuracy and evasion checks.
Minimize appears as one of Chandelure's Pokémon moves. Chandelure temporarily shrinks in size, rendering it immune to attacks until it reverts. While shrunken, Chandelure can also move to reposition itself to keep distance from the opponent.
