Color Change (Japanese: へんしょく Color Change) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Kecleon is the only Pokémon that has this ability.


In battle

When hit by a damage-dealing move, a Pokémon with Color Change will change its type so that it is the same as that of the move that harmed it. If the Pokémon with Color Change has a Substitute, its type will not change if it is hit by a damage-dealing move until after the Substitute is broken. It will change both types of a dual-typed Pokémon which has gained this ability. This ability does not apply to the Template:Type2.

Outside of battle

Color Change has no effect outside of battle.
