Weak Armor(JP) is a Pokémon ability introduced in the fifth generation.


The ability holder's speed increases by two stages* with every physical attack. However, the ability holder's defense will also be lowered by one stage. If the ability holder is hit with a physical multi-hit move, the ability will activate for each hit.
