From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Light Metal (Japanese: ライトメタル Light Metal) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. In Generation IX, it is the signature Ability of Scizor.
Halves the weight of the Pokémon with this Ability, rounded down to the nearest tenth (e.g., Metang, normally weighing 202.5 kg, will weigh 101.2 kg if it has Light Metal).
Autotomize is applied before other weight-modifying effects, including Light Metal. A Pokémon's weight cannot be reduced below 0.1 kg.
This has no effect on the Heavy Ball, which uses the Pokémon's species' weight rather than its current weight.
Outside of battle
Light Metal has no effect outside of battle.
Pokémon with Light Metal
- Due to the way damage is calculated for Grass Knot and Low Kick, Metagross will take maximum damage from these moves even with Light Metal.
