  • Howl is technically a sound-based move despite the fact it isn't affected by Soundproof. This is due to the fact it effects its user, instead of the opponent.
  • In terms of its function Howl is basically the opposite of move Growl (Howl increases the users attack stat, while Growl decreases the opponents' attack stat).
