Unaware てんねん
Flavor text
Generation IV
Ignores any change in ability by the foe.
Generation V
Ignores any stat changes in the Pokémon.
Generation VI
Currently unknown

Unaware (Japanese: てんねん Doofus) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. As of Generation V, seven Pokémon have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the Signature Ability of Bidoof and Bibarel.


In battle

Unaware ignores the foe's positive or negative stat changes, with the exception of Speed. For example, if the foe uses Iron Defense, and a Pokémon with this Ability uses a physical move on the foe, the damage dealt will be the same as if Iron Defense was not used. Likewise, if the foe has previously been affected by Tail Whip, damage dealt to it by the Pokémon with Unaware will be as if Tail Whip had not been used.

Outside of battle

Unaware has no effect outside of battle.
