Calm Mind

“The user quietly focuses its mind and calms its spirit to raise its Sp. Atk and Sp. Def stats.”

Calm Mind is a psychic-type status move originally introduced in Generation III.  It’s a beefy move that boosts the Pokémon’s own special attack and special defense stats by one stage each.

Meditite can learn the move by level up with the level depending on the game – 28 in Generation III, 25 from Generation IV and currently 23 from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire onward.




“The user meditates to awaken the power deep within its body and raise its Attack stat.”

Meditate is a Psychic-Type move that won’t damage the enemies directly but helps greatly to increase the own attack stats by one stage. It can also be powered up by using Psychium Z to rise the Attack stats by another stage.

Meditite gets access to the move very early on in its lifespan, learning it once it reaches level 4.

#307 Meditite

“It continually meditates for hours every day. As a result of rigorous and dedicated yoga training, it has tempered its spiritual power so much it can fly.”

Meditite is a dual psychic / fighting type Pokémon that is available in Ruby and Sapphire, but is not available in Emerald without trading with another player.  It evolves into Medicham at level 37, is uncommon in the wild, and can be seen in the mountains.

Meditite have an unusual lifestyle – their diet consists of just one berry each day, they always do yoga workouts every day without fail, and they meditate for hours to build up their mental strength.  Their dedication to their tough regime is so powerful they can levitate in the air.  However, when in meditation they lose concentration and go in a never-ending loop of building itself up and learning they still need improvement.

Its debut in the animé was under the ownership of Shauna, a trainer who studies at Brawly’s Gym.  She used Meditite in two battles against Ash’s Pikachu – the first one quickly was called off due to a storm before either Pokémon could inflict damage, then the second one had Pikachu make a comeback against Meditite’s flurry of attacks.  According to Brawly, Shauna and Meditite had trained together since she was a little girl.
