Effects

Snore deals damage and has a 30% chance of causing the target to flinch (if the target has not yet moved). However, it can only be used while the user is asleep (either from a move like Hypnosis or self-induced via Rest).

Pokémon with the ability Inner Focus or those behind a Substitute cannot be made to flinch.

Changes

In Generations 2-5, Snore has base power 40.
