Light Metal (Japanese: ライトメタル Light Metal) is an ability introduced in Generation V. Five Pokémon have this ability, all of which are part Template:Type2. This ability is exclusively obtainable via the Dream World.


In battle

The user's weight is halved. This decreases the damage taken from Low Kick and Grass Knot, increases the damage taken from Heavy Slam and Heat Crash, and also lowers user's base power of Heavy Slam, due to these moves being calculated by the target and user's weight.

Outside of battle

Light Metal has no effect outside of battle.
