Effect

In battle

When a Pokemon with Swarm uses a Bug move, the power will increase by 1.5× if the user has less than or equal to ⅓ of its maximum HP remaining.

Outside of battle

From Pokemon Emerald onwards, if the Pokemon leading the party has Swarm, the chance of encountering wild Pokemon increases. In Pokemon Emerald, this Ability also increases the rate in which the cries of wild Pokemon could be heard on the field.

Pokemon Conquest

In Pokemon Conquest, Swarm will increase user’s Attack if the Pokemon using it is below ⅓ of its HP.
