Eccentric is an ability introduced in Generation V. Only one Pokémon can have this ability, and it is obtained through the Dream World.


In battle

As soon as the user comes into battle, it Transforms into its opponent, copying the opponent's stats exactly, with the exception of HP. Eccentric copies all stat changes on the target originating from moves and abilities such as Swords Dance and Intimidate, but not from items such as Choice Specs. Eccentric will not Transform the user if the opponent is an Illusion or if the opponent is behind a Substitute.

Outside of battle

Eccentric has no effect outside of battle.
