Flavor Text

Passes poison, paralyze, or burn to the Pokémon that inflicted it.


Whenever this Pokémon is burned, paralyzed, or poisoned, the Pokémon who gave this Pokémon that ailment is also given the ailment.

This ability passes back bad poison when this Pokémon is badly poisoned. This ability cannot pass on a status ailment that the Pokémon did not directly receive from another Pokémon, such as the poison from Toxic Spikes or the burn from a Flame Orb.

Out-of-Battle Effect

If the lead Pokémon has this ability, wild Pokémon are guaranteed to have the same nature as the lead Pokémon. This does not work on Pokémon received outside of battle or in some special battle scenarios (roaming legendaries, Max Raid Battles, etc.).
