Changes the Pokémon's type to the foe's move.


In battle

Color Change changes the ability-bearer's type, when hit by a damage dealing move, to the type of that move. For example being hit by X-Scissor will change the Pokémon to Bug-type. Dual-type Pokémon change to single-types.

If a Pokémon with Color Change has a Substitute, the ability does not activate. Color Change activates for the last strike of a multi-hit move.

Outside of battle

Color Change has no effect outside of battle.
