In Gen 6, if Pokémon's weight is higher than 200kg, Sky Drop cannot lift it. Light Metal halves the Pokémon's weight.

So if a Mold Breaker (like Hawlucha) use Sky Drop on Light Metal Registeel (whose original weight is 205kg), what would happen?Would Light Metal be negated and the Pokémon unable to be lifted, or can it be lifted normally?

Also, would a Heavy Metal Lairon be negated in the same situation as well?

It wont work.

As you can see in this replay, Sky Drop failed when my Mold Breaker Hawlucha used it on the Light Metal Registeel.
This happened because Mold Breaker negates all abilities that affect the move's damage, whether it's positively or negatively.

Source-the replay.

But does a non-Mold Breaker Sky Drop actually work on a Light Metaller?
Yes it does, want me to make another replay :D?
"whether IN a positively or negatively." - I see what you did there
O.O (filler)

It will not work.

This is because of the fact that Mold Breaker prevents all abilities of Pokemon that affect the moves damage, whether in a positive way or negative way.

Source, see that Light Metal and Heavy Metal are included in the list abilities that are ignored by Mold Breaker.
Hope I helped!
