Nintendo Ability: Weak Armor


Back to list

Weak Armor

Categories: Harms the User, Raises Stats
Pokémon with this Ability are covered in a very thin, frail and/or crude armor plating that shatters and falls away with even the lightest physical blow. When the bearer of this Ability is struck with a physical attack, its Defense stat is lowered by one stage. However, the loss of the armor grants the bearer a greater freedom of movement, raising their Speed stat by one stage as well. This Ability activates for every hit of multi-hit moves.

Physical attacks lower Defense and raise Speed.
