If you're battling competitively, Cute Charm could be quite useful. If your opponent's using a male Pokémon and your Sylveon is female, it could cause your opponent to switch out and think of a different strategy. It would've been better if Sylveon had Natural Cure, though, so that it could heal all of its status conditions when it is withdrawn. Since its eyes are purely blue, it also would've been good if it had Tinted Lens. "
That's the problem! Many abilities that rely on making contact are kinda lame, competitively or not competitively, such as Static, Poison Point, Flame Body, ... Cute Charm is even worse, because it needs, in addition to making contact, the foe to be the opposite gender... Many competitive Pokémon are genderless!
