Aftermath (Japanese: ゆうばく Induced Explosion) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Eight Pokémon can have this Ability.

Effect

In battle

When a Pokémon with this Ability faints by damage from a move that makes contact, the attacker will lose ¼ of its maximum HP. If the Ability Damp is active on the field, however, Aftermath's effect will be suppressed.

Outside of battle

Aftermath has no effect outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, when the Pokémon faints, it sometimes causes an explosion similar to Selfdestruct, reducing HP by half on team members and by 40 on hostile Pokémon.

Trivia

  • All Pokémon that can have this Ability can learn Explosion. Aftermath's similarity to Explosion is more apparent in other language versions, including the original Japanese, where the Ability is known as ゆうばく Yūbaku (Induced Explosion). This is also why the Ability Damp affects Aftermath.
