Own Tempo (Japanese: マイペース My Pace) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

Own Tempo prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by confusion, even if it is self-inflicted (such as from moves like Thrash or items like the Iapapa Berry).

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

Generation III

If a Pokémon with Own Tempo is confused due to obtaining it from Baton Pass, it will be cured of confusion as soon as it switches in. If a Pokémon with Trace is sent into battle via Baton Pass and is confused as a result, if it gains Own Tempo via Trace it will not be cured of confusion until after a Pokémon takes its turn (uses a move, switches out, etc.).

If the Pokémon with this Ability is confused and is holding a Persim, Lum, or Touga Berry, Own Tempo will cure the Pokémon of confusion before the Berry has a chance to be consumed.

Generation IV

If a Pokémon with Trace is sent into battle via Baton Pass and is confused as a result, if it gains Own Tempo via Trace it will be cured of confusion immediately.

In Generation IV only, if a Pokémon is confused and has a status condition, if its confusion is cured by Own Tempo, the status condition icon will disappear from the HP bar while it is in battle. The status condition will continue to take effect, however.

Generation V to VII

If a Pokémon with Own Tempo is confused due to obtaining it from Baton Pass, it will not be cured of confusion until after a Pokémon takes its turn (uses a move, switches out, etc.).

If the Pokémon with this Ability is confused and is holding a Persim or Lum Berry, the Berry will be eaten before Own Tempo cures the Pokémon of confusion.

Generation VIII onward

Own Tempo now also blocks Intimidate.

Outside of battle

Rockruff with Own Tempo are capable of evolving into Dusk Form Lycanroc.
