Aurora Veil (Japanese: オーロラベール Aurora Veil) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation VII. It was TM70 in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon.

Effect

Aurora Veil reduces the damage done to the user by physical and special moves for five turns by half; in battles beside Single Battles, Aurora Veil protects the user and all allies, but only reduces damage by (roughly) a third rather than half (specifically, with a multiplier of 2732/4096). It does not reduce damage done by self-inflicted confusion damage, critical hits, or moves that deal direct damage. Aurora Veil can only be used during hail or snow, but the effect remains even after hail or snow ends; Cloud Nine and Air Lock will cause Aurora Veil to fail even if it is hailing or snowing.

While it can be active at the same time as Reflect and Light Screen, the damage reduction effects do not stack. Aurora Veil is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by Brick Break, Defog, or Psychic Fangs, or if a Pokémon with Screen Cleaner is sent out. Pokémon with the Ability Infiltrator ignore the effects of Aurora Veil when attacking.

If a Light Clay is held when Aurora Veil is used, it will extend the duration of Aurora Veil from 5 to 8 turns.

If powered up by an Icium Z into Z-Aurora Veil, the user's Speed stat rises by one stage.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Aurora Veil is Alolan Ninetales's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 6 and upgrading Icy Wind into it instead of Blizzard. The user dashes a short distance and creates an aurora centered on its position for 5s, reducing damage received by Ninetales and allies within the aurora by 30%, and healing Ninetales with each boosted attack. While Ninetales is inside the aurora, movement speed is increased by 20% and all basic attacks are boosted. At level 13, damage reduction is increased by 5%, and cooldown is reduced by 2s.
