Simple Beam (Japanese: シンプルビーム Simple Beam) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Simple Beam changes the target's Ability to Simple. If a Pokémon affected by Simple Beam is switched out, it regains its original Ability.

Simple Beam fails if the target's Ability is Simple, Truant, Multitype, Stance Change, Schooling, Comatose, Shields Down, Disguise, RKS System, or Battle Bond.

With Simple as its Ability, if the Pokémon's stat stages would be increased or decreased, the amount they would change by is doubled.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Simple Beam, the user's Special Attack stat rises one stage.
