Defiant

Categories: Raises Stats, Prevents Stat Lowering
Pokémon with this Ability don't appreciate the foe's efforts to debilitate them at all; their desire to beat the foe to a pulp only intensifies. This Ability causes the bearer's Attack stat to rise two stages for every single-stage drop to any of of its stats, including Attack (rendering the bearer functionally immune to Attack drops). This Ability does not activate if the drops are self-inflicted, or if they are caused by an ally in a double/triple battle. It also cannot be activated by Baton Pass.

When its stats are lowered its Attack increases.
