Magma Armor (Japanese: マグマのよろい Magma Armor) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

Magma Armor prevents the Pokémon from being frozen.

A Pokémon with this Ability will be thawed out if it is frozen while in battle (such as if it gains the Ability outside of battle or by an effect like Skill Swap, or is frozen by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker).

Generation III

If a frozen Pokémon with Magma Armor is sent into battle as one of the lead Pokémon or to replace a fainted Pokémon, or gains Magma Armor due to Trace, it will not be cured of freeze until after a Pokémon takes its turn (uses a move, switches out, etc.). It will be cured of freeze if it is switched in to replace a switched out Pokémon.

If a frozen Pokémon has Magma Armor as its original Ability but not its current Ability, it will remain frozen when switched out.

If the Pokémon with this Ability is frozen and is holding an Aspear, Lum, or Pumkin Berry, Magma Armor will cure the Pokémon of freeze before the Berry has a chance to be consumed.

Generation IV

When a frozen Pokémon with Magma Armor enters battle, it will be cured of freeze.

If a frozen Pokémon has Magma Armor as its original Ability but not its current Ability, if it is one of the active Pokémon at the end of the battle or switched out, it will be cured of freeze (with no message).

Generation V onward

If a frozen Pokémon has Magma Armor as its original Ability but not its current Ability, it will remain frozen when switched out.

If the Pokémon with this Ability is frozen and is holding an Aspear or Lum Berry, the Berry will be eaten and cure the Pokémon of freeze before Magma Armor has a chance to activate.

Outside of battle

If a frozen Pokémon gains Magma Armor by evolution or the Ability Capsule, it will not be thawed out until sent into battle. Pokémon with Magma Armor will not be frozen by the Gentleman's Dusclops in the Battle Pike nor the Battle Arcade's game board.

From Pokémon Emerald onward, if a Pokémon with Magma Armor is in the party (even if fainted), the number of cycles it takes for all Pokémon Eggs in the party to hatch are halved. This effect does not stack with itself or Flame Body; however, it can be stacked with Hatching Power Pass Power or O-Power.
