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 used by the Pokémon with this Ability act as though they were Normal instead of their usual type. Hidden Power is not affected by Normalize.

If the move Flying Press is changed by Normalize, it becomes a Normal/Flying-type move, but it only counts as Normal when determining STAB.

If the move Freeze-Dry is changed by Normalize, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively is retained.

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).
