Effect

Resets the target's evasion to normal and prevents any further boosting until the target leaves the field. A Ghost under this effect takes normal damage from Normal and Fighting moves. This move itself ignores accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Meta

This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
