Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does the ability Skill Link also apply to an ally/opponent in a battle ?

I mean can other Pokemon can have it too or do you first need to use a move like Role Play ?

I'm guessing this is what you meant.
If it isn't, correct me.
But your earlier question was confusing as hell
I will correct my answer as well if needed.

Thea ability your Pokemon has only applies to that certain Pokemon.

Each Pokemon has their own ability(of course there are Pokemon that share abilities as well). One might have Skill link the other might have something else.

So yes, you would first need to use a move such as Role-play to get that ability.

Pokemon that have Skill link:

  • Shellder, Cloyster
  • Aipom, Ambipom
  • Minccino, Cinccino
  • Mega Heracross

Well, some abilities are shared between Pokemon...
I mean they aren't shared in battle. But I can see what you mean, I'll edit it.

No, Skill Link only applies to the Pokemon with the ability.

This Pokemon's multi-hit attacks always hit the maximum number of times.

So yes, you will need to use a move like Skill Swap or Role Play.
