Clear Body is an ability in the Pokémon series introduced in the third Pokémon generation. It prevents stat loss.


Clear Body prevents stat reduction caused by another Pokémon's move or Ability. Stat reductions can only be caused on Pokémon with this Ability if they are self-inflicted, such as from moves like Superpower or Hammer Arm and it does not prevent stat increases like Flatter or Swagger.

Clear Body does not prevent stat reduction as a side effect like from paralysis or burning. Clear Body does not prevent stat losses caused by Heart Swap, Guard Swap, Power Swap, Guard Split, Power Split, Baton Pass, and Topsy-Turvy.

This Ability can be ignored with abilities that ignore ability effects like Mold Breaker, Teravolt, and Turboblaze.
