Illusion (ability)

Roblox: DeepWoken - The Loop

In-game description
Comes out disguised as the Pokémon in back.

Illusion is an ability introduced in Generation V. So far, 2 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

When a Pokémon with the Illusion ability switches into battle, it takes the form of the Pokémon in the last slot of the player's party. Illusion will not activate if the Pokémon in last place is the same species or is fainted.

The effect is aesthetic only; Illusion does not change the Pokémon's type or moves. Any direct attack (i.e. not entry hazards, weather conditions, etc.) will break the illusion.

Outside of battle

Illusion has no effect outside of battle.
