Some abilities are useless in battle. Suggest ways to fix them in this topic.


Anticipation: Activates when the opponent switches in as well

Big Pecks: Increases defense by 50% as well

Cursed Body: The chance of disabling the move is proportional to the amount of damage it would do to the pokemon (so if a pokemon is OHKO'd, it has a 30% chance of disabling)

Cute Charm: 100% chance of attraction immediately on switching in.

Forewarn: Activates when the opponent switches in as well

Flare Boost: Increases special attack by 1 stage per turn after being burned.

Flower Gift: As well as the boosts, if the pokemon uses Sunny Day, it's induced permanently.

Friend Guard: In affition, If the pokemon switches out, the pokemon that switches in takes 50% less damage that turn and is immune to entry hazards.

Healer: In addition, if the pokemon is fainted, the pokemon that switches in afterwards is healed from status.

Heavy Metal: If the pokemon uses a contact move, and it misses, the Pokemon immediately uses Earthquake. Adds all effects of the Iron Ball except the speed drop.

Hyper Cutter: Cutting Moves and moves that use claws (like Cut, X Scissor, Slash, Crabhammer) are 30% stronger

Illuminate: Ghost type and Dark type attacks do half damage for every illuminate Pokemon on the field.

Immunity: The pokemon can be poisoned; it just doesn't do damage.

Infiltrator: Hits through protect (but not detect)

Keen Eye: The pokemon's also unaffected by opponents evasion boosts

Light Metal: In Tailwind, always goes first (ie moves have priority +1).

Magma Armor: Also raises both defenses by 1 stage when hit by a fire type attack

Moody: Doesn't include accuracy and evasion any more

Minus: Electric type moves also have an additional 30% paralysis chance

Oblivious: Also makes the pokemon immune to Intimidate, Taunt, Torment, Encore, Swagger, Leer, Glare, Scary Face etc. (anything that affects the pokemon because of something they see)

Plus: Electric Type Moves also have an additional 30% chance of raising special attack

Poison Touch: Contact moves that already poison will now badly poison

Run Away: The wielder can always switch out, even when trapped

Slow Start: The pokemon's attack and speed start off at 50%, and increase by 10% every turn until they're at 100%

Teravolt: Ground type pokemon only resist Electric type moves (instead of being immune). Electric Type moves do double damage when resisted.

Telepathy: When the Pokemon switches in, it keeps the status boosts of the pokemon that just switched out if they weren't KOd (automatic BP receiver)

Toxic Boost: Increases attack by 1 stage a turn when poisoned

Turboblaze: Fire type moves do double damage when resisted.

Unburden: It's an ordinary speed boost that can be BP'd

Unnerve: Nullifies all of the opponents held items (except Griseous Orb, Plates on Arceus and Drives on Genesect)

Water Veil: Works on allies as well

White Smoke: Also works for self applied status drops

Bad Abilities that are left alone:
Honey Gather (all pokemon that get it are NFEs, and no battle ability would make sense)
Stall, Truant and Defeatist (deliberately bad for a reason, and don't need buffing unlike Slow Start)

Illuminate: Decreases all opponents' accuracy when the pokemon is sent into battle.

Infiltrator: Also hits through Protect and Substitute, as well as ignoring any defense/special defence boosts.

Most of these are pretty good but

-Cute Charm seems hella annoying (especially on something like Milotic)
-Did you just nerf Cursed Body?
-Illuminate: Sounds annoying
-Keen Eye should just give you an accuracy boost
All it takes is constant progress, little by little. The same can be said for me, or anybody.

I'd consider my Cursed Body change a buff, since if it's not really being hurt by an attack, it's probably not going to be worth disabling. It's the only one in there that's not fixing a bad ability though.

I don't want Keen Eye to be the same as Compoundeyes, and ignoring evasion boosts will be handy in game.

I like hitting through substitute, but not the defense boosts thing.

The illuminate is basically a free evade boost, which is annoying as hell.

Immunity:Completely blocks poison-type attacks.
Truant: Heals the pokemon by 1% of its health while loafing.
Defeatist:The opponent(s) feel bad, and their attack falls.

I'll do the Starter hidden abilities

Solar Power: Boosts Sp. Atk by 50%.

Contrary: Now only reverses the first stat lowered. So if Contrary Serperior uses Leaf Storm, it gets one boost and one drop.

Speed Boost: Now only boosts speed every other turn.

Damp: 30% chance of changing the opponent to a water type when hit by a contact move

Shell Armor: Boosts defense by 20% when struck by a contact move.
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

Pigeon boobs - Cool, but the utilizing pokemon pool is lacking

Maybe if gen 6 introduced a Pidgeot with better stats distribution to give it a playtime


Heavy Metal - Did not make sense.

Turboblaze - lolwut
Real Metal bounces their breast. Deal with it

If the pokemon's attack misses and it hits the ground/wall instead, it's so heavy that it causes an earthquake
