Forecast can be Traced in Gen III, every ability can. So, say if you were in a WiFi battle against a Castform, Forecast was Traced, and the Castform used Hail, what happens?

Best answer

Castform's type will still change

This Ability has no effect on Pokémon other than Castform.

So if you Traced forecast with for example, Gardevoir, Castform will not lose Forecast and will still have Forecast. Hail, for example would still change Castform's type if it has been Traced. However, it will not change the type of Gardevoir.

That quote appears in neither of your sources. Where is it from?
Ok, lemme edit it
Why will Castform lose forecast when another Pokemon traces it?
Trace switches ability, so then Castform will not have forecast, making it unable to change type, right?
Trace copies the other Pokémon's ability, not switched them.

This was un-BA’d. How did that happen?
