Effect

In battle

Generation III

When a Pokemon with Pressure is targeted by a foe’s move, one additional PP is deducted upon execution. Consequently, extra PP is deducted even if the foe’s move misses, has multiple targets, or is rendered ineffective due to immunity. Pressure applies to allies targeting the Pokemon.

If the move of a Pokemon targets several foes with Pressure, one additional PP will be deducted for each one.

Generation IV

The presence of Pressure is broadcast with the message "<name> is exerting its Pressure!"

This Ability is not affected by Mold Breaker.

Generation V

Pokemon no longer have PP deducted by allies with Pressure.

This Ability is not affected by Teravolt or Turboblaze.

Outside of battle

From Pokemon Emerald onwards, if a Pokemon with Pressure is leading the party, then Pressure increases the chance of battling a higher-leveled wild Pokemon by50%. It shares this effect with Hustle and Vital Spirit.
