Infestation is an offensive Bug-type move; it is TM93, and can be found in the Anthell, west of Super Scientist Mohammed.


Infestation deals damage and inflicts 1/8 of the target's maximum HP as damage per turn for four to five turns upon use. It also traps the target, preventing manual switching and escape. If a trapped Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed.

If a wild Pokémon uses Infestation on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out. If an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.

If the user of Infestation is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 7 turns. If a Binding Band is held by the user, the damage done at the end of each turn will increase from 1/8 of the target's maximum HP to 1/6.
