| Adjusts power based on an opposing Pokémon's stats.
Download (Japanese: ダウンロード Download) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Four Pokémon can have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature Ability of Porygon's evolutionary line.
Download raises either the Attack stat or Special Attack stat by one stage depending on the foe's lowest current defensive stat (i.e. it will raise Special Attack if the foe's current Special Defense is lower than its current Defense stat). If the foe's Defense and Special Defense are equal, the Special Attack stat is increased. During a Double Battle, Download will add the two opposing Pokémon's stats and calculate the lower stat between both.
Outside of battle
Download has no effect outside of battle.
