Serene Grace (Japanese: てんのめぐみ Heavenly Blessing) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Twelve Pokémon have this ability. All non-legendary Pokémon with this ability are part Template:Type2.

Effect

In battle

Serene Grace will double the chance of a move having an additional effect. For example, Psychic will have a 20% chance of lowering the target's Special Defense stat instead of its usual 10% chance, and Rock Smash will always lower an opponent's Defense by 1 level, as opposed to having a 50% chance of doing so. It does not, however, improve the chance of item effects.

Outside of battle

Serene Grace has no effect outside of battle.
