Cursed Body is an Ability introduced in Generation V.

Cursed Body
Flavor text
May disable a move used on the Pokémon.


In battle

When a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a damaging move, there is a 30% chance that the Cursed Body will disable that move of the attacking Pokémon for 4 turns (including the turn Cursed Body activates). Cursed Body can activate even if the attacker is behind a substitute or if the Pokémon with Cursed Body is knocked out, but will not activate if the attack hits the substitute of the Pokémon with Cursed Body.

If Cursed Body disables a multi-strike move before it has finished all of its hits, it will not prevent the other hits from being executed. Cursed Body can disable a move that calls another move if the called move dealt damage.

Outside of battle

Cursed Body has no effect outside of battle.
