Gives full immunity to all sound-based moves.


This Pokémon is immune to moves with the Sound-based flag and to Thunderclap's flinch chance.

Heal Bell is unaffected. Uproar still prevents this Pokémon from sleeping. This Pokémon can still receive a Perish Song counter through Baton Pass, and will retain a Perish Song counter if it acquires this ability after Perish Song is used.

Howl, Roar of Time, Sonic Boom, and Yawn are not flagged as sound-based.

This ability functions identically to Soundproof.
