Scary Face (Japanese: こわいかお Scary Face) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. In Generation VIII, it is TM26.

Contents

Effect

Generations II to IV

Scary Face lowers the target's Speed stat by two stages.

Scary Face can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if either Leer or Rage was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing any of the moves Bite, Crunch and Leer to have their base appeal points doubled.

Generation V onward

Scary Face's accuracy was changed from 90% to 100%.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Scary Face, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.
