Flavor Text

The user throws a glob of rotting compost at the target, which may also make it flinch. A freshly-used Berry makes the compost even smellier.

Move Description

The user gathers up a ball of smelly, rotting plants and debris and throws it at the opponent. The awful stench may cause the target to flinch. If the user has recently eaten, the leftover scraps can be added to the compost to cause additional damage.


Has a 30% chance to make the target flinch.

If the user has eaten a berry that had an in-battle effect on the user (e.g., eating an Oran Berry if it heals HP will work; eating a Chilan Berry via Pluck will not) since the beginning of the battle, even if it has since switched out, this move does 1.5× its usual damage. Eating a held berry, eating a berry via Berry Juicer, Bug Bite or Pluck, or being the target of a flung/juggled berry or a berry shared by Berry Share will enable this move. Feeding a Pokémon a berry from the bag or using Natural Gift will not.
