Effect

In-Battle

An in-battle effect for Stench was introduced in Generation V. In the fifth generation of games, when a Pokémon with the Stench Ability uses an attack that requires physical contact, there is a 10% chance of the target flinching. However, the odds of an opponent flinching cannot be stacked with held items, such as King's Rock or Razor Fang.

Before the fifth generation, Stench did not have an effect in battle.

Overworld

When a Pokémon with Stench is in the party's lead slot, the chances of encountering a Wild Pokémon decrease by 50%. In the Battle Pyramid, Stench reduces this chance by 75%.
