Normalize (ability)

Effect

Normalize causes all moves used by the Pokémon to become Normal-type, and attacking moves increase in power by 20%.

Normal-type Pokémon also gain STAB from those moves (which means an effective increase of 80%).

The following moves are not affected by Normalize: Hidden Power, Judgment, Multi-Attack, Natural Gift, Revelation Dance, Struggle, Techno Blast, Weather Ball, and damaging Z-Moves.

The move Flying Press deals Normal/Flying type damage instead of Fighting/Flying. Freeze-Dry remains super-effective against Water-types, but follows the Normal type chart against other types (e.g. neutral against Grass-types).

Changes

In Generations 4-6, Normalize did not increase damage (besides any usual boosts like STAB). All moves listed above except Struggle are affected by Normalize.
