Pressure

Flavor Text

The Pokémon raises opposing Pokémon’s PP usage.

Effect

Moves targeting this Pokémon use one extra PP.

This ability stacks if multiple targets have it. This ability still affects moves that fail or miss. This ability does not affect ally moves that target either the entire field or just its side, nor this Pokémon's self-targeted moves; it does, however, affect single-targeted ally moves aimed at this Pokémon, ally moves that target all other Pokémon, and opponents' moves that target the entire field. If this ability raises a move's PP cost above its remaining PP, it will use all remaining PP.

When this Pokémon enters battle, all participating trainers are notified that it has this ability.

Out-of-Battle Effect

If the lead Pokémon has this ability, higher-leveled Pokémon have their encounter rate increased.
