The Ability Capsule is an item introduced in Generation VI.


Using an Ability Capsule on a Pokémon whose species has two standard Abilities changes the current Ability to the other one. This consumes the Ability Capsule.

The Ability Capsule cannot be used on a Pokémon whose species only has one standard Ability. It cannot be used to change a Pokémon's Ability into its Hidden Ability, or vice versa.

It cannot be used to change Zygarde's Ability between Aura Break and Power Construct. As of Pokémon Sword and Shield Version 1.3.0, one must use a Zygarde Cube instead.

The Ability Capsule cannot be flung if held by a Pokémon.
