Natural Cure (Japanese: しぜんかいふく Natural Recovery) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Fifteen Pokémon can have this Ability.

Effect

In battle

Natural Cure heals any status conditions upon switching out or completing a battle (if it was in battle at the end of the battle).

This effect will occur if Natural Cure is the Pokémon's Ability in battle when it switches out and is not suppressed; a Pokémon that obtained the Ability with Trace will have its status condition cured when it switches out, whereas a Pokémon which has Natural Cure but has been affected by Gastro Acid will not.

Outside of battle

From Generation IV onward, Natural Cure automatically heals status conditions upon the end of a battle.
