Attract (NO) -- Using light energy, the user attempts to make itself look more attractive to the opposing Pokémon. In order to be effective, both Pokémon must be of opposite genders or the opposing Pokémon must be of a compatible sexuality (as specified in the bio, if at all). Success of the move is dependent on a number of factors, including mental state and the length of the battle, with mechanics similar to Charm. However, unlike Charm and similar moves, Attract also is dependent on the physical similarity between the user and its foe. Pokémon of the same species or closely tied species (e.g. Plusle and Minun) will easily fall for the Attract, with Pokémon of similar body shapes having fairly high success and very dissimilar Pokémon being unlikely to fall for the move. Attract may be performed on or by non-breeding, gendered Pokémon (e.g. babies), though the execution will focus more on maternal/paternal attraction, rather than sexual. Genderless Pokémon can neither perform nor fall prey to this move. Once Attracted, the affected foe will be calmed considerably. Its attacks will be considerably weaker and it will hesitate to perform any actions that will harm the user. Once the affected foe is struck by an attack from the user, the illusion will break and the Attraction will end. Subsequent uses will be ineffective.
