Petal Dance is a damage-dealing Grass-type move.
Petal Dance inflicts damage for 2 to 3 turns (chosen at random). Once selected, even if it misses, the user will only be able to use Petal Dance, and will not be able to switch out. At the end of this duration, the user will become confused.
In double battles, Petal Dance's target is a randomly selected enemy.
If the Petal Dance duration is disrupted, such as by full paralysis, sleep, freeze, flinching, partial trapping, or by hurting itself due to confusion, it will immediately end. The user will only become confused if Petal Dance is fully executed, without its duration being disrupted. If a disruption occurs on what would have been the final, confusion-inducing turn of Petal Dance, the user will still become confused.
