Mummy (Japanese: ミイラ Mummy) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. It is the signature Ability of Yamask and Cofagrigus.


In battle

When the user is hit by a contact move, the attacking Pokémon's Ability is turned into Mummy, overwriting the Pokémon's previous Ability. Besides spreading Mummy in battle, the Ability does not have any other effect. The affected Pokémon's Ability returns to normal when they are returned to their Poké Ball.

Multitype and Mummy itself are the only Abilities not affected by Mummy.

Outside of battle

Mummy has no effect outside of battle.
