Cloud Nine (Japanese: ノーてんき No Weather) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Six Pokémon can have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature Ability of Psyduck and Golduck.
When a Pokémon with Cloud Nine is in battle, all effects of weather are eliminated.
When a Pokémon with Cloud Nine is brought out, the message "The effects of weather disappeared." will be displayed.
Outside of battle
Cloud Nine has no effect outside of battle.
Pokémon with Cloud Nine
- The Japanese name of this Ability is a double entendre, written so as to suggest ノー天気 nō tenki (no weather), but also homophonous to 能天気 nōtenki (carefree), in reference to Psyduck, originally the only Pokémon (in addition to Golduck) that had this Ability. The English name derives directly from the "carefree" meaning, while still maintaining a weak pun to connect it to the weather.
