Storm Drain (ability)
Storm Drain forces all single-target Water-type moves - used by any other Pokémon on the field - to target this Pokémon, and with 100% accuracy. The ability is most useful in double/triple battles.
When hit by the move, it deals no damage to the ability-bearer but raises its Special Attack by one stage. Stats can be raised to a maximum of +6 stages each.
In Generations 3-4, Storm Drain did not increase Special Attack nor give immunity to Water-type attacks. It also did not activate for Hidden Power.
