Wandering Spirit (Ability)
Wandering Spirit (Japanese: さまようたましい Wandering Spirit) is an Ability introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature Ability of Galarian Yamask and Runerigus.
When a Pokémon with Wandering Spirit is hit by a contact move, it exchanges Abilities with the attacker. If a Pokémon affected by Wandering Spirit is switched out, it regains its original Ability.
The Ability will trigger even if the Pokémon with Wandering Spirit faints from the attacking move.
Wandering Spirit does not work on the following Abilities: As One, Battle Bond, Comatose, Commander, Disguise, Flower Gift, Forecast, Gulp Missile, Hunger Switch, Ice Face, Illusion, Imposter, Multitype, Neutralizing Gas, Power of Alchemy, Receiver, RKS System, Schooling, Shields Down, Stance Change, Wonder Guard, Zen Mode, and Zero to Hero.
Outside of battle
Wandering Spirit has no effect outside of battle.
