In-game description
Passes poison, paralyze, or burn to the Pokémon that inflicted it.

Synchronize is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 4 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

When the Pokémon is burned, paralyzed, or poisoned by another Pokémon, that Pokémon will be inflicted with the same status condition. Synchronize will have no effect if the opponent has a type, Ability, or team condition (e.g. Safeguard) that prevents it from being burned, paralyzed, or poisoned. However, Synchronize does affect an opponent behind a substitute.

Outside of battle

If the bearer is leading the party (even if fainted), any wild Pokémon encountered has a 50% chance of having the same Nature as the bearer.
