Unburden (Japanese: かるわざ Acrobatics) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Twelve Pokémon can have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature Ability of Drifloon and Drifblim.

Effect

In battle

Unburden doubles the Pokémon's Speed stat when the Pokémon's held item is lost. If there is no held item to begin with or if a held item is traded for another, Unburden will not be activated. This boost is lost if the Pokémon is switched out.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

As long as a Pokémon with Unburden is not holding an item, it attacks or uses moves twice in one turn. Moves affected by this only have 1 PP deducted despite being used twice.

Outside of battle

Unburden has no effect outside of battle.
