Sweet Scent (Japanese: あまいかおり Sweet Scent) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM12 in Generation II.

Effect

In battle

Generations II to V

Sweet Scent lowers the evasion of all adjacent opponents by one stage.

Sweet Scent can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing PoisonPowder, Sleep Powder, and Stun Spore to have their base appeal points doubled.

Generation VI onwards

Sweet Scent now lowers the targets' evasion by two stages.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Sweet Scent, the user's accuracy is raised one stage.

Outside of battle

Generations II and III

Sweet Scent causes wild Pokémon to appear when used as a field move, provided the player is standing in an area where wild Pokémon would normally appear. Sweet Scent will cause a wild encounter even if Repel is in effect.

Generations IV and V

Sweet Scent can only be used under clear weather.

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl only, using Sweet Scent (or Honey) inside a shop or Poké Mart will cause the descriptive text of purchasable items to vanish until the player opens the "SELL" menu or leaves the shop. This is known as the Poké Mart text glitch.

Generation VI

Sweet Scent will initiate a Horde Encounter if Horde Encounters can take place in the location it is used. Otherwise, a normal wild encounter will be triggered.

In Pokémon X and Y, Sweet Scent can only be used under clear weather. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Sweet Scent is unaffected by the weather.

Generation VII

Sweet Scent can no longer be used outside of battle.

When released from a Pokéball, Bellossom uses Sweet Scent and starts dancing and releasing a cloud of powder. Any opponents that make contact with it fall asleep. The victims cannot move until they are attacked or when it disappears. Bellossom stays on the stage longer compared to other Pokémon.
