Encore is a non-damaging Normal-type move.


Encore prevents the target from using any other moves besides the one it just used. It will fail if the target has not moved yet. Disable and Torment can force an opponent under an Encore to Struggle. An Encore lasts for 3 turns.

If Encore is bounced back using Magic Coat, the move fails.


The user compels the target to keep using only the move it last used for three turns.
