Wonder Skin (Japanese: ミラクルスキン Miracle Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Four Pokémon can have this Ability.


In battle

Wonder Skin halves the chance that an opponent's status move will affect the user. This includes moves that inflict status ailments (e.g. Thunder Wave's paralysis) as well as moves that alter an opponent's in-battle stats (e.g. Growl's reduction in Attack). It does not affect moves that alter status as a secondary effect (e.g. Thunder's chance to paralyze, or Rock Smash's reduction in Defense).

Outside of battle

Wonder Skin has no effect outside of battle.

Please note that this is only 100% accurate to Generation VII games.
  • For Generation III games, ignore Abilities introduced in Generation IV or later and Hidden Abilities.
  • For Generation IV games, ignore Hidden Abilities.
  • For Generation V games, ignore Abilities introduced in Generation VI or later.
  • For Generation VI games, ignore Abilities introduced in Generation VII.


  • Unlike Abilities that provide complete protection against status changes (e.g. Immunity or Keen Eye), the "Pokémon's Ability" message is not displayed when Wonder Skin takes effect.
