A very appealing move, but after using this move, the user is more easily startled.

V-create (Japanese: ジェネレート V-generate) is a damage-dealing Fire-type move introduced in Generation V. In Generation VIII, it is one of the signature moves of Victini.

Effect

V-create deals damage, then lowers the user's Defense, Special Defense, and Speed stats by one stage each.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Sword and Shield

From Versions 1.0 to 1.2.1 of Pokémon Sword and Shield, V-create could not be selected in a battle. Starting with Version 1.3.0, it is usable and functions the same as it did in previous generations.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

V-create cannot be selected in a battle.

Generation IX

V-create is programmed into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but cannot be used in a battle as no available Pokémon can learn it, and it cannot be called by Metronome.
