Nasty Plot is a Dark-Type move that was introduced in Generation IV. Stimulating its brain by thinking some not-so-nice thoughts, the user increases its Special Attack by two levels. Once the Pokémon's Special Attack has been raised by +6 stages (or Nasty Plot has been used three times without the Special Attack stat being reduced or reset due to Haze or switching out), this move will have no effect. In competitive battling, this is a very common setup move for strong special sweepers such as Celebi, Houndoom, and Azelf.
