Hyper Cutter (Japanese: かいりきバサミ Superpowerful Claws) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.
Hyper Cutter prevents other Pokémon from lowering the Attack stat stage of the Pokémon with this Ability. It does not prevent the Pokémon with this Ability from lowering its own Attack, such as by using Superpower.
Effects that decrease Attack without using stat stages, such as Power Swap, Heart Swap, and Power Split, are unaffected by Hyper Cutter.
This Ability can be ignored with Mold Breaker, Teravolt, and Turboblaze.
Outside of battle
In Pokémon Emerald, using Cut will remove all tall grass within a two-square radius of the player's position, as opposed to a one-square radius without this Ability. From Generation IV onward, Hyper Cutter has no effect outside of battle due to the removal of cutting tall grass.
