PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

OK, so I found out what STABmons is, and apparently it is where a Pokemon can learn any move of its typing. But on OM of the month (December 2020) one of the formats is StAAAbmons. What even is that about? I can't find a guide on it anywhere, not even from Smogon!

It's a combination of STABmons and Almost Any Ability.
Any Pokémon can have any move that has the same type as itself, even if it can't usually learn it, and can have, well, almost any ability.

Hope I Helped!
