Moves can be used on the target regardless of its Abilities.

Mold Breaker is an ability introduced in Generation 4. So far, 5 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Mold Breaker prevents a target's ability from affecting moves that the Pokémon with Mold Breaker uses. It only affects abilities that change the power, accuracy or other effects of moves. For example, a Pokémon with Mold Breaker would be able to hit a Pokémon with Levitate using a Ground type move.

However, Pokémon can still be affected by abilities that do not directly alter the effects of moves, such as Aftermath, which instead causes direct damage to the opposing Pokémon.
