From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Receiver (Japanese: レシーバー Receiver) is an Ability introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature Ability of Passimian.
When an ally of the Pokémon with this Ability faints in battle (regardless of cause), Receiver will be replaced by the fainted Pokémon's Ability.
Receiver will not activate if its ally had the Ability Receiver, Power of Alchemy, Trace, Forecast, Flower Gift, Multitype, Illusion, Wonder Guard, Zen Mode, Imposter, Stance Change, Power Construct, Schooling, Comatose, Shields Down, Disguise, RKS System, Battle Bond, Wandering Spirit, Zero to Hero, or Commander.
Receiver cannot be copied by Role Play or Trace. Role Play and Entrainment will fail if used by a Pokémon with Receiver.
Outside of battle
Receiver has no effect outside of battle.
