PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I know that Gastro Acid restrains the target's Abilities, but some Pokemon depend on their abilities (eg. Shedinja and Wonder Guard, and Aegislash and Battle Stance). So would Gastro Acid suppress those abilities too, or will it fail? If Gastro Acid fails on certain Abilities, can you give me a list of those Abilities?

Thank you!
So Gastro Acid will suppress Wonder Guard? Poor Shedinja.
Gastro Acid will suppress Wonder Guard.  Poor Shedinja indeed.

Gastro Acid fails if the target's Ability is Multitype, Stance Change, Schooling, Comatose, Shields Down, Disguise, RKS System, Battle Bond, Power Construct, Ice Face, or Gulp Missile. Gastro Acid can be reflected with Magic Coat and Magic Bounce (but Gastro Acid will still suppress Magic Bounce if it is not reflected by it, such as if Gastro Acid is used by a Pokémon with Mold Breaker).

Pickup and Honey Gather can still find an item after the battle even if suppressed.

Bulbapedia doesn't know whether it can suppress hunger switch.
