Battle Armor (Japanese: カブトアーマー Kabuto Armor) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.
Battle Armor prevents the opponent from landing a critical hit, even if they would usually always land one such as with Frost Breath, Storm Throw, Wicked Blow, Surging Strikes, or with Merciless (if the target is poisoned).
Outside of battle
Battle Armor has no effect outside of battle.
