Pressure (Japanese: プレッシャー Pressure) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Twenty-three Pokémon can have this ability, a majority of them legendary.

Effect

In battle

Pressure increases the foe's PP usage by one for every successful hit. This ability works even if the Pokémon is immune to the attack's type, for example, using Earthquake against a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Starting in Generation IV, Pressure also affects ally Pokémon in a double battle when using moves such as Earthquake, Surf, Lava Plume, Discharge or any other move which affect all Pokémon engaged in battle.

As of Generation IV, one is alerted to the presence of Pressure by the message "<name> is exerting its Pressure!"

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onwards, if the Pokémon with Pressure is leading the party, then Pressure increases the chance of battling a higher-leveled wild Pokémon by 50%. See also Hustle and Vital Spirit.
