Static (Japanese: せいでんき Static Electricity) is an ability introduced in Generation III. Fourteen Pokémon have this ability, all of which are Template:Type2.

Effect

In battle

When Pokémon with this ability are hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the attacking foe will become paralyzed. This can affect Ground-type Pokémon.

Outside of battle

From Pokémon Emerald onward, having a Pokémon with this ability at the front of the player's party also increases the chances of finding Electric-type Pokémon in the area by 50%.
