Night Daze 10 85 95 The user looses a pitch-black shock wave at the target to inflict damage. This may also lower the target's accuracy.
Night Slash 15 70 100 The user slashes the target the instant an opportunity arises. This move has a heightened chance of landing a critical hit.

Taunt 20 -- 100 The target is taunted into a rage that allows it to use only attack moves for three turns.

Throat Chop 15 80 100 The user attacks the target's throat, and the resultant suffering prevents the target from using sound-based moves for two turns.
Topsy-Turvy 20 -- 101 All stat changes affecting the target turn topsy-turvy and become the opposite of what they were.
Torment 15 -- 100 The user torments and enrages the target, making it incapable of using the same move twice in a row.
