| Zen Mode
| Daruma Mode
Zen Mode (Japanese: ダルマモード Daruma Mode) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Darmanitan is the only Pokémon that can have this Ability, which allows it to change form.
When Darmanitan's HP drops to below half, it will change into its Zen Mode at the end of the turn. If it loses its Ability, or recovers HP to above half while in its Zen Mode, it will change back to its Standard Mode. This Ability only works on Darmanitan, even if it is copied by Role Play, Entrainment, or Trace, or swapped with Skill Swap.
Outside of battle
Zen Mode has no effect outside of battle.
