Petal Dance is a Grass-type move.

Petal Dance inflicts damage over 2-3 turns. PP is deducted only on the turn Petal Dance is first called. Once called, even if the move misses, the user will only be able to use Petal Dance, and will not be able to switch out. After Petal Dance is finished, the user becomes confused. It is disrupted if it is not successful due to missing, sleeping, paralysis, freeze, flinching, a Protecting target, or a type immunity. If a disruption occurs on what would have been the final, confusion-inducing turn of Petal Dance, the user will still become confused.

If the Petal Dance duration is disrupted (such as by full paralysis or hurting itself due to confusion), it will immediately end. The user will only become confused if Petal Dance is fully executed, without its duration being disrupted. Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Petal Dance.

In battles with multiple opponents, the user selects itself as the target, but hits an adjacent opponent that is selected at random upon each use of the move.
