Telepathy (Japanese: テレパシー Telepathy) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Sixteen Pokémon can have this Ability.

Effect

In battle

A Pokémon with Telepathy avoids all damaging moves used by its allies in Double and Triple Battles. This includes attacks with multiple targets (such as Discharge), as well as attacks exclusively targeting an ally with Telepathy (such as Thunderbolt). However, it is not protected from its allies' status moves (such as Teeter Dance or Confuse Ray).

When Telepathy prevents an attack from hitting, the message "<name> avoids attacks by its ally Pokémon!" will be displayed.

Outside of battle

Telepathy has no effect outside of battle.
