Nuzzle (ほっぺすりすり Cheek Rub) is an Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI.

Effect

Nuzzle does damage and paralyzes the target. Paralyzed Pokémon have a 25% chance of not being able to attack, and their Speed is decreased by 50% (75% in Generation VI). In a Double Battle, Nuzzle can target any Pokémon around the user. In a Triple Battle, Nuzzle can only target a Pokémon that's adjacent to the user.

Description
