Abilities that Change Normal Type Moves Affect Ghost Types?

0 votes

I'm talking about the abilities like Refrigerate, or Pixillate. So say a Pokemon has one of those kinds of abilities, and they use (let's say...) Tackle on a Ghost type. Would the Tackle move hit the ghost?

Best answer

When a Pokemon has an ability that changes their normal moves to another move, e.g. Refrigerate, moves like Tackle, Return, Take Down etc. will hit Ghost types as an Ice move, or whatever type the move was changed to. Obviously, if the move was changed to something that Ghost types are immune to, e.g. Fighting, then the move would have no effect.

Scrappy also allows Normal and Fighting moves to hit Ghosts, but it doesn't change the type of those moves.
