Prevents the Pokémon from falling asleep.

Insomnia is an Ability. One Pokémon can have this Ability. Along with Vital Spirit and Sweet Veil, it is one of the three Abilities that prevent sleep.


In battle[]

Insomnia prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by sleep and Yawn. Rest will fail if used by the Pokémon.

A Pokémon with this Ability will wake up if it is asleep in battle (such as if it gained the Ability through evolution or by an effect like Skill Swap, or when put to sleep by a Pokémon with Mold Breaker). If the Pokémon is holding a Chesto or Lum Berry, the Berry is consumed before Insomnia wakes the Pokémon.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is drowsy due to Yawn, when it would fall asleep the Ability activates and keeps it awake.
