Special Abilities

Like its predecessor, Pokémon Shuffle has you using Pokémon to attack wild Pokémon, and so many of the Pokémon have got special abilities. These abilities range in use from increasing the strength of your attacks, to removing various hazards.

These abilities are set to the species of the Pokémon and cannot be changed.

As of version 1.3.10, you can now boost the abilities using Skill Powers. These are obtained either in levels, or through items. As they increase, their abilities get stronger.
