Pokémon Abilities

Like the previous Pokémon Rumble, Rumble Blast features Pokémon who have special abilities. These abilities are not changeable and come randomly on the Pokémon when you obtain them. They are denoted by a pink name and description of the ability. Most of these are found randomly, but a variety of Pokémon obtained via password will have a special ability, some of which can only be obtained herthrough that method. You will only encounter Pokémon with abilities after you have reached Chapter 3

The abilities typically are beneficial, allowing for boosts in the strengths or defences of the Pokémon you use in the levels. Typically, they are restricted to only boost the Pokémon itself, but some Pokémon have abilities which do boost all Pokémon when in multiplayer or Team Battles. This page will detail all of the abilities and what they do

Special Abilities

As you progress through the game, you'll start encountering more and more abilities. However, as you near the end of the game, you will start seeing Pokémon with abilities labelled in Blue as opposed to Pink. These abilities are special and give the Pokémon several different traits. However, some of them require you to complete certain tasks to obtain them
