Serene Grace (Japanese: てんのめぐみ Heavenly Blessing) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.

Effect

In battle

Serene Grace will double the chance of a move having an additional effect. For example, Psychic will have a 20% chance of lowering the target's Special Defense stat instead of its usual 10% chance, and Rock Smash will always lower an opponent's Defense by 1 level, as opposed to having a 50% chance of doing so. Serene Grace boosts the 10% flinch chance due to King's Rock or Razor Fang to 20%. Serene Grace has no effect on status moves.
