If the wielder attacks and the target's ability would prevent the
effects of the attack from taking place, or hinder the effects of the
move, the ability is temporarily nullified while the attack is in
progress. Abilities that prevent status, such as Limber or Magma
Armor, are also deactivated during the attack. This allows a Pokemon
that has one to be affected by the status they prevent, but the
ability will cure the status immediately after all effects of the
attack resolve. Mold Breaker also gives a message when the wielder
switches in stating that it has Mold Breaker. Mold Breaker does not
nullify abilities for the duration of either Future Sight or Doom
Desire that was used by another Pokemon.

Abilities that are ignored are as follows:

  • Battle Armor
  • Big Pecks
  • Clear Body
  • Contrary (Mold Breaker will not reverse the current boosts, but additional stat changes are not affected by Contrary)
  • Damp (including the prevention of Aftermath's effect)
  • Dry Skin (including the added damage from Fire-type moves)
  • Filter
  • Flash Fire
  • Flower Gift (both the Attack and Special Defense boosts are nullified)
  • Friend Guard
  • Heatproof
  • Hyper Cutter
  • Illusion (Illusion will not be broken when attacked by a Pokemon with Mold Breaker)
  • Immunity
  • Inner Focus
  • Insomnia
  • Keen Eye
  • Leaf Guard
  • Levitate
  • Light Metal
  • Lightningrod
  • Limber
  • Magic Bounce
  • Magma Armor
  • Marvel Scale
  • Motor Drive
  • Multiscale
  • Oblivious
  • Own Tempo
  • Sand Veil
  • Sap Sipper
  • Shell Armor
  • Shield Dust
  • Simple
  • Snow Cloak
  • Solid Rock
  • Soundproof
  • Sticky Hold
  • Storm Drain
  • Sturdy
  • Suction Cups
  • Tangled Feet
  • Telepathy
  • Thick Fat
  • Unaware (even if the Pokemon's stat stages are less than 0)
  • Vital Spirit
  • Volt Absorb
  • Water Absorb
  • Water Veil
  • White Smoke
  • Wonder Guard

Terravolt and Turboblaze are it's equals so all these abilites will be negated as well

Yes. It will negate any ability on this list.

Mold Breaker and Turboblaze do exactly the same thing so that applies for all 3 of them.
