Glare

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal - 90% 30 0 - Single non-user

Description

Paralyzes the target. Ghost-types are not immune. Pokemon protected by Magic Coat or the ability Magic Bounce are unaffected and instead use this move themselves.

Competitive Use

Glare is a move that will reliably paralyze almost any Pokemon. It also got an accuracy boost in BW, making it even more reliable. However, thanks to the poor distribution it still won't be seen much. Dunsparce can now use it to reliably paralyze his targets as an option instead of Thunder Wave, hitting Ground-types as a bonus. Druddigon can somewhat use this too, crippling faster threats so it won't have to rely on Trick Room to outspeed its counters. Apart from these rare cases, it will not be seen regularly in the competitive environment.

Related Moves

Thunder Wave is an Electric-type equivalent, but Ground-types and Pokemon immune to Electric moves are unaffected, unless the user's ability is Normalize.

Stun Spore is a Grass-type equivalent that can hit all Pokemon bar Sap Sipper and Limber Pokemon.
