Nintendo Ability: Early Bird


Back to list

Early Bird

Categories: Affects Status Effects
Pokémon with this Ability are light sleepers, and wake up quicker than most.
Pokémon normally are set to sleep for 1-3 turns, with an equal chance for each value being chosen. A Pokémon with this Ability effectively halves the set value (rounding down to the nearest whole number), resulting in a Pokémon with this Ability sleeping for anywhere from 0-1 turns. If the sleep counter is made zero thanks to Early Bird, the bearer will wake up at the end of the same turn that it was put to sleep.

The Pokémon awakens quickly from sleep.
