So what does the ability actually DO, does it just take away the abilities of other Pokémon so they can't use them? Or is there some sort of effect that having the ability "Mummy" causes other than being able to pass the ability further. For example, does it cause burn or some other effect? Also, what about Illusion? Is the only thing it does is change the appearance of your Pokémon? --Landfish7 00:18, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Yes to the first question regarding Mummy. Yes to Illusion. ~ solaris 00:19, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Is the change permanent, or does the ability revert back to normal after the battle? --~~☆Flyingtypefan☆~~ Talk Name origin 20:27, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Normal and Fighting

If a Pokémon with Mummy is targeted by a Normal- or Fighting-type move, does Mummy's effect activate? —darklordtrom 00:40, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, if the Pokémon with mummy isn't Ghost.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 14:32, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
To clarify: in the case of the only two mons that have it, no. But only because it is a Ghost type, and Normal/Fighting moves with Contact will not actually make contact, thus not triggering the ability at all. If a non-Ghost mon could legitimately posess Mummy, then yes, it would behave normally even with Normal/Fighting contact moves, as long as there is no other impedence on its contact. - unsigned comment from Wohdin (talkcontribs)
You seem to forget that not only can Muummy spread itself, but other Pokémon can also get it via Skill Swap, Trick and Role Play, so there are countless situations where a Pokémon that is not Ghost-type could have it. Also, Foresight, Odor Sleuth and Scrappy would make it possible to hit Ghost-type Pokémon with Normal- and Fighting-type moves. --SnorlaxMonster 03:25, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Double/Triple Battles

Does this effect allies in double and triple battles, e.g. Sending out Cofagrigus and Slaking and having Slaking attack Cofagrigus in order to get rid of its Truant ability. --Landfish7 23:57, 9 February 2011 (UTC)


This ability then renders Arceus's plate-form change void then? Vemoth 07:33, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
