Petal Dance is a damage-dealing Grass-type move. 


Petal Dance inflicts damage for 2-3 turns. Once called, even if the move misses, the user will only be able to use Petal Dance, and will not be able to switch out. After Petal Dance is finished, the user becomes confused.

If the Petal Dance duration is disrupted (such as by full paralysis or hurting itself due to confusion), it will immediately end. The user will only become confused if Petal Dance is fully executed, without its duration being disrupted. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Petal Dance.


The user attacks the target by scattering petals for two to three turns. The user then becomes confused.
