Effect

Serene Grace doubles the chance of moves' secondary effects occurring - specifically stat changes, status ailments, or flinching.

Serene Grace does not affect a user's critical hit ratio, nor the move Secret Power. It does not increase chances of effects from held items, but those effects may still occur.

Examples

Shadow Ball normally has a 20% chance of lowering Special Defense; with Serene Grace it is boosted to a 40% chance.

Air Slash has a 30% of causing the target to flinch; with Serene Grace it is boosted to a 60% chance. If the item King's Rock is held, as above it does not increase that percentage, but rather if the effect does not occur naturally (40% chance), then there is a further 10% chance the target will flinch from King's Rock. This means Serene Grace with Air Slash and King's Rock gives a total probability of 64% that the opponent will flinch.
