Role Play (Japanese: なりきり Change Appearance) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move.

Effect Edit

Role Play replaces the user's Ability with the target's Ability.

Role Play bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. It is not affected by Protect, Detect, or Spiky Shield, but will fail if the target is protected by Crafty Shield.

If both Pokémon have the same Ability, Role Play will succeed, but Abilities such as Intimidate that activate when they are gained will not activate at this time.

Role Play fails if the target's Ability is  Wonder Guard, Trace, Wonder Guard, or Forecast.

Description Edit

Description
The user mimics the foe completely and copies the foe's ability.
