Trivia

  • Many non-Flying-type Pokémon that have been seen to be capable of floating or flying, such as Reshiram, cannot have this ability.
    • Shedinja also cannot have this ability; however, its Wonder Guard ability gives it immunity to Ground-type moves. Shedinja is still affected by Arena Trap and vulnerable to fainting from Spikes and Toxic Spikes due to its 1 HP.
  • Despite the fact that its Generation IV description says that it gives full immunity to all Template:Type2 moves, Pokémon with Levitate are affected by Sand-Attack.
  • Even if a levitating Pokémon uses Dig, Levitate still makes Earthquake and Magnitude miss.
  • Origin Forme Giratina is the only Pokémon with Levitate as its sole ability that possesses a hidden ability besides Levitate.
  • Fan Rotom is the only Pokémon with this ability to be naturally immune to Ground-type moves due to being Flying-type.*
