Normalize (Japanese: ノーマルスキン Normal Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Only two Pokémon have this Ability, both in the same evolutionary line. It is the signature Ability of Skitty and Delcatty.


In battle

Normalize makes all moves used by the Pokémon with this Ability act Normal-type instead of its ordinary typing.

Outside of battle

Normalize doesn't have any effect outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, as well as previously mentioned effects, Normalize turns the standard attack into a Normal-type move. It also makes throwing items deal Normal-type damage. This doesn't apply to fixed damage items (Geo Pebble, Gravelerock, Unown Stones, or Rare Fossil).
