Unaware (Japanese: てんねん Doofus) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. As of Generation V, seven Pokémon have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the Signature Ability of Bidoof and Bibarel.


In battle

Unaware ignores other Pokémon's positive and negative stat changes when calculating damage involving a Pokémon with this Ability. This means that damage dealt by a Pokémon with Unaware ignores the target's Defense and Special Defense stat changes. Likewise, damage dealt to a Pokémon with Unaware ignores the attacker's Attack and Special Attack stat changes.

Unaware will not prevent the moves Stored Power and Punishment from factoring in the stat changes that determine their power.

Outside of battle

Unaware has no effect outside of battle.
