Introduction
------------
Welcome to my FAQ for Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire Pokemon Abilities. In case you 
don't already know, in this sequel of the Pokemon series, there are special 
abilities that all Pokemon know naturally when you obtain them. The Pokemon 
will use them automatically in battle or in-game when the time is appropriate, 
just like they would with berries. That would be all that this FAQ covers. In 
the next section, you'll find the full list of abilities, along with who can 
learn each of them. So, let's begin.

The link itself says it all, my ASCII art for the first page came from here.
It doesn't just come in one font, either - there are many other types as well,
I just chose to use a rather simple one.

**Jeff 'CJayC' Veasey**
Without him, this FAQ wouldn't exist in the first place. He has the best video
game reference site I've ever found in GameFAQs, and I hope he continues with
it for years to come. I can't thank him enough.

**Pokemon R/S Strategy Guide**
Finding all the Pokemon that knew each ability would have been an impossible 
task without this thing.

**You**
Why you? Because as the reader, you provide me with a reason to write. What
use would this guide be without people to read it? Thank you.
