Spore puts the target to sleep. Sleeping Pokémon cannot move (with some exceptions such as Snore). Sleep lasts for 1-3 turns.

Pokémon with the abilities Insomnia or Vital Spirit, or those behind a Substitute cannot be put to sleep.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Grassium Z and uses its Z-Power, Spore turns into Z-Spore and eliminates any stat drops applied to the user, in addition to its usual effect as above.
