Minimize is a  Normal-type status move.


Minimize raises the user's evasion by two stages.

The moves Body SlamDragon RushHeat CrashPhantom ForceSteamroller, and Stomp will bypass accuracy checks and deal double the damage when used against a Pokémon that has used Minimize.


The user compresses its body to make itself look smaller, which sharply raises its evasiveness.
