Quick Feet (ability)

Effect

Quick Feet raises the ability-bearer's Speed by 50% when inflicted by a major status ailment (poison, burn, paralysis, freeze or sleep). If paralyzed, the Pokémon does not suffer the usual drop in Speed.

All other effects of the status condition remain, e.g. losing HP each turn (poison, burn), or being unable to attack (paralysis, freeze, sleep).

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Quick Feet is the leading party Pokémon, wild Pokémon are only half as likely to appear.
