Color Change (ability)

Effect

Color Change changes the ability-bearer's type, when hit by a damage dealing move, to the type of that move. For example being hit by X Scissor will change the Pokemon to Bug-type. Dual-type Pokemon change to single-types.

If Pokemon with Color Change has a Substitute, the ability does not activate. Color Change activates for the last strike of a multi-hit move.

Changes

In Generations 3-4, Color Change activates on the first strike of a multi-hit move, thus subsequent hits may be not very effective.
