Hyper Cutter (Japanese: かいりきバサミ Superpowerful Claws) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

Hyper Cutter prevents other Pokémon from lowering the Attack stat stage of the Pokémon with this Ability. It does not prevent the Pokémon with this Ability from lowering its own Attack, such as by using Superpower. It does not prevent Spectral Thief from stealing (i.e., resetting) positive stat changes.

Effects that decrease Attack without using stat stages, such as Power Swap, Heart Swap, and Power Split, are unaffected by Hyper Cutter.

This Ability can be ignored with Mold Breaker, Teravolt, and Turboblaze.

Outside of battle

Generation III

In Pokémon Emerald, if a Pokémon with Hyper Cutter uses Cut in the overworld, it will remove all tall grass within a two-square radius of the player's position, as opposed to a one-square radius without this Ability.

Generation IV onward

Hyper Cutter has no effect outside of battle due to the removal of the ability to cut tall grass.
