Today's ability is Arena Trap!. I would guess this one will get a pretty decent score considering what it does. Rate it however you want.

Arena Trap: Prevents the foe from fleeing.

A much in depth version of the ability, courtesy of Bulbapedia
"Pokémon rendered immune to Ground-type attacks are immune to Arena Trap. This includes Flying-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Levitate, and Pokémon affected by Magnet Rise or Telekinesis. Likewise, if a Pokémon normally immune to Ground-type attacks is made vulnerable, they will be affected; if the Pokémon is under the effect of Gravity, Smack Down, a move that negates Levitate (such as Gastro Acid or Simple Beam), type change effects that remove Flying-type (such as Soak, Conversion, Camouflage, or Color Change), or a held Iron Ball, it will be unable to escape.

Using Baton Pass or U-turn, or holding a Shed Shell will allow the Pokémon to switch out under all circumstances. Run Away will circumvent its effect in a wild Pokémon battle only."

10/10. The only reason that dugtrio is used is because of this.
I don't even know anymore.

I always listen, I just don't respond.

8/10. Dugtrio is awesome with this ability, but outside of Trapinch, Dugtrio is pretty much the only one that can use this. Also, Arena Trap isn't as threatening as it was in past gens due to U-turn and Air balloons being available.

Great ability, not many good pokes get it. And I get the feeling many people don't know it works only on grounded pokes.(I lost my own Duggy way too often because people actually left something flying in when I used Pursuit.Might be just bad prediction on my part, but when they are wondering why I used Pursuit afterwards...)

Late night bump

Whoever gave it a 1 hopefully misclicked.

If it's on purpose...


Anyways, this ability is annoyingly useful for battling, 10/10

9. 1 point loss for being slightly inferior to Shadow Tag and that most of its users are also slightly inferior to the Shadow Taggers.
