In-game description
Contact with the Pokémon may cause paralysis.

Static is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 5 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Moves that make contact with the Pokémon have a 30% chance to paralyze the attacker.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a multi-strike move that makes contact such as Fury Swipes, each hit has an independent chance to activate this Ability.

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Static is leading the party, then there is a 50% chance the game will force an encounter with an Electric-type Pokémon, if one is possible.
