  • TM05

Roar is a non-damaging Normal-type move. It is TM05.


Roar can be used to automatically end wild Pokémon battles, so long as the target is a lower level than the user.

In battle against a Trainer, Roar will force a switch with a randomly chosen Pokémon from the Trainer's party. If there isn't another Pokémon, Roar will fail.

Roar will fail when used against Pokémon with the abilities Soundproof and Suction Cups or rooted by Ingrain.


The target is scared off and replaced by another Pokémon in its party. In the wild, the battle ends.
