Dark Aura (Japanese: ダークオーラ Dark Aura) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature Ability of Yveltal.


In battle

Dark Aura increases the damage dealt by Dark-type attacks by 33% for all Pokémon on the field. This effect is inverted by Aura Break, instead dividing the power of Dark-type attacks by 1.33, resulting in approximately a 25% reduction in damage.

The effects will not stack multiple times if more than one Pokémon has this Ability.

Outside of battle

Dark Aura has no effect outside of battle.
