Normalize (Japanese: ノーマルスキン Normal Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature Ability of Skitty and Delcatty.


In battle

Normalize makes all moves (including status moves) used by the Pokémon with this Ability act as though they were Normal-type instead of their usual type.

If Normalize makes Thunder Wave a Normal-type move, Thunder Wave can affect Ground-type Pokémon but not Ghost-type Pokémon, unless the Ghost-type Pokémon is holding a Ring Target.

If the move Flying Press is affected by Normalize, it deals Normal/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry is affected by Normalize, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively is retained.

If Electrify or Ion Deluge is used on a Pokémon with Normalize, all its moves turn to the Electric type rather than Normal type.

Generation IV

Hidden Power, Weather Ball, Natural Gift, and Judgment are affected by Normalize.

Generation V onward

Hidden Power, Weather Ball, Natural Gift, Judgment and Techno Blast are not affected by Normalize.

Outside of battle

Normalize doesn't have any effect outside of battle.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, as well as previously mentioned effects, Normalize turns the standard attack into a Normal-type move. It also makes throwing items deal Normal-type damage. This does not apply to fixed damage items (Geo Pebble, Gravelerock, Unown Stones, or Rare Fossil).
