TM45 Attract Details + Uses
|Attract Move Details|
TM45 Attract is a Normal-type move that can only be used against Pokémon of the opposite gender.
When used, the target Pokémon becomes Infatuated. This is a status effect that causes the Pokémon’s moves to fail 50% of the time.
Attract is a powerful Status move when usable, but it relies entirely on gender. This can be unpredictable in battle unless you’re actively relying on guides for certain tougher fights in the game (and even then, there are likely better strategies to employ).
The infatuation status will wear off when either Pokémon faints or is switched out of battle, which also makes Attract easy to negate.
So generally speaking? The Attract TM is likely not worth using in your team.
But if you’d like to use TM45, it’s best to teach it to a female Pokémon. Because a majority of the trainers and their Pokémon are male, which gives you a higher chance of getting real value out of Attract more frequently.
