Insomnia (Japanese: ふみん Insomnia) is an ability that prevent sleeping.

Flavor text
Prevents the Pokémon from falling asleep.


In Battle

Insomnia prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by sleep and Yawn. Rest will fail when used by the Pokémon.

A Pokémon with this Ability will wake up if it is asleep in battle (such as if it gains the Ability outside of battle or by an effect like Skill Swap, or is put to sleep by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker).

If a Pokémon with this Ability is drowsy due to Yawn, when it would fall asleep the Ability activates and keeps it awake.

The move Worry Seed can change the target Pokémon's Ability to Insomnia.

Outside of battle

Insomnia has no effect outside of battle. If a Pokémon that is asleep gains Insomnia outside of battle due to the use of an Ability Capsule, it will not wake up.
