Lightning Rod
In-game description
Draws in all Electric-type moves to boost its Sp. Atk stat.

Lightning Rod is an Ability. It is the signature ability of Aerivore.


In Battle

Lightning Rod forces all single-target Electric-type moves used by foes to strike the Pokémon with this Ability. It also forces all single-target Electric-type moves used by allies to strike the Pokémon with this Ability. Any offensive Electric-type moves will never miss the Pokémon with this Ability.

If another Pokémon becomes the center of attention, Electric-type moves will be directed to it instead of the Pokémon with Lightning Rod.

Lightning Rod also gives the Pokémon immunity to all Electric-type moves, and raises the Pokémon's Special Attack by one stage whenever they are hit by one. This effect will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Electric-type move.

If Lightning Rod is passed to a Ground-type, its type-granted immunity to damaging Electric-type moves takes precedence over the Ability, so the Pokémon's Special Attack will not be raised unless it is holding a Ring Target.

Lightning Rod can redirect Electric-type Hidden Power, Judment and Natural Gift.

If a Pokémon with Lightning Rod is holding a Cell Battery, Lightning Rod absorbs the move so the Cell Battery's effect is not triggered.

Outside of Battle

Lightning Rod has no effect outside of battle.
