Nintendo Ability: Illusion
Back to list
A Pokémon with this Ability can alter its shape to imitate Pokémon of different species.
In a battle, the bearer will assume the guise of the Pokémon at the back of the player's party. Illusion will replicate the type of Poké Ball, species name, Shininess (if any), and gender of the Pokémon it is masquerading as; however, it does not replicate the level, type or moveset of the masqueraded Pokémon.
Illusion is broken when the user is damaged by an attack, but it is not broken by damage inflicted by Substitute, Life Orb, weather conditions, status ailments or entry hazards. It is also broken if the user's Ability is changed or nullified.
Comes out disguised as the Pokémon in back.
