RKS System (Japanese: ＡＲシステム AR System) is an Ability introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature Ability of Silvally.
RKS System changes the type of the Pokémon with this Ability depending on the Memory attached. RKS System will prevent the effects of Knock Off, Trick, Switcheroo, Thief, or Covet if the target is specifically holding a Memory.
A Pokémon with RKS System cannot be affected by type-changing moves, such as Soak; however, it can be affected by Forest's Curse and Trick-or-Treat.
Role Play, Gastro Acid, Worry Seed, Simple Beam, and Entrainment fail if the target has the Ability RKS System. Skill Swap fails if either Pokémon has RKS System. RKS System cannot be copied by Trace, Power of Alchemy, or Receiver. RKS System cannot be replaced by Mummy or suppressed by Core Enforcer. If a Pokémon other than Silvally obtains RKS System with Imposter or Transform, the Pokémon will copy the form of the target Silvally regardless of its own held item.
Outside of battle
RKS System has no effect outside of battle.
