Sylveon's Ability

Well infatuation is like the most ANNOYING THING EVER! soooo


Yeah, but-

1) It has only a 30% effect chance of happening.

2) The opponent has to make physical contact with Sylveon.

3) The opponent has to be of the opposite gender (and actually have one).

Since most Eevee are male, most Sylveon are going to be male. Most of the Pokemon currently in OU are predominantly male or genderless. Cute Charm is arguably the worst of the contact-effect abilities.

... Unless they decide to buff it this gen to add an infatuation effect to Sylveon's moves that make physical contact (basically combining Poison Point and Poison Touch into one ability). Why they haven't done it before when it was generally agreed the moves as they are are pretty bad is beyond me.

I mean, also doing that with Rough Skin/Iron Barbs/Rocky Helmet would be awesome (and make Garchomp really, really powerful)

What's the effect of cute charm again?


A chance to inflict infatuation on getting hit with a physical attack.

In the Competitive Meta Game, your opponent will most likely switch out ...

This can be good, if you use Baton Pass


30% chance for a contact move AND opposite gender though? I mean, yes it can be useful and it isn't totally hopeless, but you gotta admit there are much better abilities out there. Plus it sorta relies on Sylveon having good Defense, which isn't guaranteed. Who knows, it could end up with stats like Wigglytuff.

I totally understand that it's not the best ability, BUT you sometimes have to make the best with what you have.
