Gale Wings (Japanese: はやてのつばさ Gale Wings) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature Ability of Fletchling's evolutionary line. This Ability is exclusively obtained as a Hidden Ability.

Effect

In battle

Gale Wings increases the priority of Flying-type moves by one. Affected Flying-type attacks and offensive status moves can be blocked by Quick Guard.

This Ability does not increase the priority of Flying-type Hidden Power, Natural Gift, or Judgment, as they are treated as Normal-type moves before being used.

Generation VII

Gale Wings now works only if the user has full HP.

Outside of battle

Gale Wings has no effect outside of battle.
