Effect

In battle

Halves the weight of the Pokémon with this Ability.

Autotomize is applied before other weight-modifying effects, including Light Metal. A Pokémon's weight cannot be reduced below 0.1 kg.

This has no effect on the Heavy Ball, which uses the Pokémon's species' weight rather than its current weight.

Outside of battle

Light Metal has no effect outside of battle.
