Nintendo Ability: Effect Spore


Back to list

Effect Spore

Categories: Causes Status Effects
A Pokémon with this Ability is coated with spores of several kinds. Any other Pokémon hitting it with a contact move has a 30% chance of getting spores on itself and be either poisoned, paralyzed or put to sleep (note that there is a bias; an 11% chance for sleep, 10% for paralysis, and 9% for poisoning). This Ability does not activate if the attack did not do damage.

Contact may paralyze, poison, or cause sleep.
