Effects

Curse is a unique move that works differently for Ghost-type Pokémon than other Pokémon. Ghost-type Pokémon use 50% of their maximum HP to place a curse on the target. The cursed Pokémon loses 25% of their maximum HP every turn. If the user has less than 50% HP remaining, they will faint but the curse still takes effect. For all other Pokémon, Curse raises the user’s Attack and Defense by one stage each and lowers Speed by one stage. Stats can be raised to a maximum of +6 stages each, or lowered to a minimum of -6 stages each.
