Effects

Grass Pledge deals damage at base power 80. If a teammate uses Fire Pledge or Water Pledge in the same turn, the moves combine into one attack of base power 160 and added effects appear.

The faster Pokémon moves first but waits for the other Pokémon to make their move. When the slower Pledge user moves, the combo attack hits the Pokémon the slower user was targeting.

If Grass Pledge is used with Fire Pledge, the move animation shows Fire Pledge and a sea of fire envelops the foe's team is created that damages opponents 18 of their maximum HP each turn, for 4 turns.

If Grass Pledge is used with Water Pledge, the move animation shows Grass Pledge and a swamp envelops the foe's team that halves the opponents' speed for 4 turns.
