Noble Roar (Japanese: おたけび War Cry) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation VI. Prior to Generation VII, it was the signature move of Litleo and Pyroar.

Effect

Noble Roar lowers the target's Attack and Special Attack stats by one stage. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. Pokémon with the Ability Soundproof are not affected by this move.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Noble Roar, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
