Boosts the Attack stat if the Pokémon has a status condition.

Guts is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 7 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Guts raises the bearer's Attack by 50% when inflicted by a major status ailment (poison, burn, paralysis, freeze or sleep). If burnt, the Pokemon does not suffer the usual drop in Attack.

All other effects of the status condition remain, e.g. losing HP each turn (poison, burn), speed drop (paralysis) or being unable to attack (paralysis, freeze, sleep).

Outside of battle

Guts has no effect outside of battle.
