| My Pace
Own Tempo (Japanese: マイペース My Pace) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Twenty Pokémon can have this Ability.
Own Tempo prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by confusion, even if it is self-inflicted (such as from moves like Thrash or items like the Iapapa Berry).
A Pokémon with this Ability will be cured of confusion if it is confused while in battle (such as if it gains the Ability by an effect like Skill Swap, or is confused by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker); however, it will not be cured of confusion until after the next Pokémon uses an attack if it is obtained by Baton Pass. If the Pokémon is holding a Persim Berry or a Lum Berry, it will be eaten before Own Tempo cures the Pokémon of confusion.
Outside of battle
Own Tempo has no effect outside of battle.
