Leer

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal - 100% 30 0 - All enemies

Description

Lowers the target's Defense by one stage. Pokemon protected by Magic Coat or the ability Magic Bounce are unaffected and instead use this move themselves.

Competitive Use

Leer should not be used competitively. A single Defense drop is not worth the moveslot or turn, and can often be found as a side effect of attacking moves such as Crunch or Razor Shell. Furthermore, the single Defense drop can be reset by switching out.

Related Moves

Screech is a more effective option that lowers the opponent's Defense by two stages.
