Download is a Pokémon ability that raises the Pokémon's attack when switched or sent into battle. It was introduced in the Fourth Generation. Prior to Fifth Generation, it was the signature ability of the Porygon evolutionary line.


Download raises either the Attack stat or Special Attack stat by one stage depending on the foe's lowest current defensive stat. If the stats are tied, Special Attack is raised. During a Double Battle, Download will add the two opposing Pokémon's stats and calculate the lower stat between both.
