Abilities

Like the main Pokémon games, Pokémon Duel has some Pokémon have special abilities. These abilities give them special perks such as the ability to move over Pokémon, or an increase/decrease in attack damage within certain circumstances. Some abilities are passive while others require activitating using the activate ability option. The game will note in the top right when ability is being used.

Abilities are not changeable so they are set depending upon the figure and so Pokémon will lose the ability if they evolve into a figure that lacks the ability.

Below is a list of all the abilities in the current version (V. 3.0.7+), as well as all Pokémon figures available with that ability. Click the figure to go to the detailed page.
