Storm Drain (Japanese: よびみず Pump Priming) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Seven Pokémon can have this Ability.
Storm Drain forces all single-target Water-type attacks to strike the Pokémon with this Ability in Double Battles, including those used by allies. In a Single Battle, it will cause the Pokémon with this Ability to always be hit by Water-type moves. Storm Drain cannot redirect Surf, as it targets multiple Pokémon. Storm Drain cannot redirect Water-type Hidden Power or Judgment.
If another Pokémon becomes the center of attention, Water-type moves will be directed to it instead of the Pokémon with Storm Drain.
Along with its previous effects, Storm Drain also gives the Pokémon immunity to all Water-type attacks and raises the Pokémon's Special Attack by one stage whenever they are hit by one.
Storm Drain draws Soak in a Double Battle.
Storm Drain can redirect a Water-type Hidden Power.
Outside of battle
Storm Drain has no effect outside of battle.
In Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, a Pokémon with Storm Drain draws in all enemy Water-type attacks on the floor, and their damage/effect is completely neutralized. Dungeon enemies with Storm Drain can negate the Storm Drain of the player's team member(s).
