Primordial Sea (ability)


Primordial Sea creates heavy rain when the ability is activated (by Kyogre reverting to its Primal form).

Heavy rain has the same effects as regular rain but with some additions:

  • The weather stays active as long as the ability-bearer remains in battle, but stops when the Pokémon is switched out.
  • Fire type attacks fizzle out and have no effect.
  • The heavy rain cannot be replaced by a regular weather condition - in other words the moves Hail, Rain Dance, Sunny Day, and Sandstorm, and the abilites Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail.

The abilities Cloud Nine or Air Lock are still able to bypass the effects of Primordial Sea, but Mold Breaker is not.
