Effects

Simple Beam changes the target's ability to Simple.

It does not cancel any ability's effects already felt (such as the Attack drop from Intimidate), but it does stop any further effects the ability may have (for example, damage from Rough Skin).

It does not work on Pokemon with the abilities Truant or Multitype.
