Growl is a non-damaging Normal-type move.


Growl decreases the opponent's Attack by one stage. It hits both opponents in a double battle.

Growl will not affect Pokémon with the abilities Soundproof, Hyper Cutter, Clear Body, or White Smoke.


The user growls in an endearing way, making the opposing team less wary. The foes' Attack stats are lowered.
