Skiploom Abilities
Abilities Description
Ability 1
Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll doubles the ability-bearer's Speed during bright sunshine.
Ability 2
Leaf Guard
Leaf Guard prevents the bearer from succumbing to major status ailments (sleep, burns, poisoning, paralysis or freezing) during sunny weather.
Hidden Ability
Infiltrator
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.
