Ability 2
Rock Head
Protects the Pokémon from recoil damage.
Hidden Ability
Reckless
Reckless increases the power of recoil moves by 20%. By extension this means the amount of recoil damage taken will increase as more more damage is dealt (except for High Jump Kick and Jump Kick which have fixed recoil).
