Taunt is a Dark-Type move introduced in Generation III. The user taunts its target into a rage, ensuring that the targeted Pokémon will only be able to use attack moves for the next three turns. It is useful in some situations, for example, if the Pokémon Meditite is using the move Detect to block the player's Pokémon's moves all of the time, Taunt will prevent this from happening.
Not the best of moves to use against a Pokémon that doesn't know any Status Attacks, but if timed right, can really disrupt a Pokémon trying to set up or pass a Status Condition.
