Abilities Description
Chlorophyll
Ability 1
Chlorophyll doubles the ability-bearer's Speed during bright sunshine.
Leaf Guard
Ability 2
Leaf Guard prevents the bearer from succumbing to major status ailments (sleep, burns, poisoning, paralysis or freezing) during sunny weather.
Infiltrator
Hidden Ability
Infiltrator ignores the effects of Reflect, Light Screen and Safeguard. In other words, if the opponent has used Safeguard, Toxic would still badly poison them.
