Nintendo Ability: Wonder Skin


Back to list

Wonder Skin

Categories: Affects Status Effects
The unusual properties of the skin of Pokémon with this Ability allow the bearer to avoid moves that affect its wellbeing. If the bearer is targeted by a move dedicated to causing a status condition (e.g. Thunder Wave) or to lowering a stat (e.g. Growl, the move's accuracy is treated as being 50% (before other accuracy modifiers have been applied). This Ability does not operate when facing Pokémon with Mold_Breaker, Teravolt or Turboblaze, status/stat-changing moves that don't have an accuracy check (e.g. Defog, Yawn), or from status/stat changes caused by the secondary effects of damaging attacks.

Makes status-changing moves more likely to miss.
