Affects the user

Curse may target any Pokémon other than the user if used by a Ghost-type.

Curse is a status Ghost-type move. For non-Ghost Pokémon, Curse lowers the user's Speed and raises their Attack and Defense, all by one stage each.

If used by a Ghost-type, it cuts the user's HP by half of its maximum and places a curse on the target. A cursed Pokémon loses ¼ of its maximum HP at the end of each turn.
