Light Metal (Ability)
Light Metal (Japanese: ライトメタル Light Metal) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Five Pokémon can have this Ability, all of which are Steel types. This Ability is exclusively obtained as a Hidden Ability.
The user's weight is halved. This decreases the damage taken from Low Kick and Grass Knot, increases the damage taken from Heavy Slam and Heat Crash, and also lowers user's base power of Heavy Slam and Heat Crash, due to these moves being calculated by the target and user's weight.
Outside of battle
Light Metal has no effect outside of battle.
