Passes on status problems

Synchronize is an ability. Two Pokémon can have this ability.


In battle[]

When a Pokémon with Synchronize is burned, paralyzed or poisoned by another Pokémon, that Pokémon will be inflicted with the same status condition. Bad poisoning is inflicted as bad poisoning.

Synchronize has no effect if the opponent has a type, ability or condition (e.g. Safeguard) that prevents it from receiving the status condition. However, Synchronize will affect an opponent behind a substitute.

If a Pokémon with Synchronize has a berry that cures the condition it was inflicted with, Synchronize will activate before the Berry is eaten.

Outside of battle[]

If a Pokémon with Synchronize is leading the party, there is a 50% chance that wild Pokémon will have the same nature as the Pokémon with Synchronize. This does not apply to roaming Pokémon.
