| All the Pokémon's moves become Normal type. The power of those moves is boosted a little.
Normalize (Japanese: ノーマルスキン Normal Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. It is the signature Ability of Skitty and Delcatty.
Normalize makes all moves (including status moves) used by the Pokémon with this Ability act as though they were Normal-type instead of their usual type.
If Normalize makes Thunder Wave a Normal-type move, Thunder Wave can affect Ground-type Pokémon but not Ghost-type Pokémon, unless the Ghost-type Pokémon is holding a Ring Target or affected by Foresight or Odor Sleuth.
If the move Flying Press is affected by Normalize, it deals Normal/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry is affected by Normalize, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively is retained.
If Electrify or Ion Deluge is used on a Pokémon with Normalize, all its moves turn to the Electric type rather than Normal type.
Hidden Power, Weather Ball, Natural Gift, and Judgment are affected by Normalize.
Generations V and VI
Hidden Power, Weather Ball, Natural Gift, Judgment, and Techno Blast are not affected by Normalize.
Normal-type moves used by the Pokémon with this Ability now receive a 20% power boost, except moves that cannot be affected by Normalize. This boost applies to both moves that are originally Normal-type and moves that become Normal-type due to Normalize.
Multi-Attack and damaging Z-Moves are not affected by Normalize.
Outside of battle
Normalize has no effect outside of battle.
