| Static Electricity
Static (Japanese: せいでんき Static Electricity) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Fifteen Pokémon can have this Ability, all of which are Electric types.
When Pokémon with this Ability are hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the attacking foe will become paralyzed. This can affect Ground-type Pokémon.
Outside of battle
From Pokémon Emerald onward, if a Pokémon with Static is leading the party, then there is a 50% chance the game will force an encounter with an Electric-type Pokémon, if one is possible.
