From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Limber (Japanese: じゅうなん Flexible) is an Ability introduced in Generation III.
Limber prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by paralysis.
A Pokémon with this Ability will be cured of paralysis if it is paralyzed while in battle (such as if it gains the Ability outside of battle or by an effect like Skill Swap, or is paralyzed by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker). If the Pokémon is holding a Cheri Berry or a Lum Berry, it will be eaten before Limber cures the Pokémon of paralysis.
Outside of battle
If a paralyzed Pokémon gains Limber by evolution or the Ability Capsule, it will not be cured of paralysis until sent into battle. Pokémon with Limber will not be paralyzed by the Gentleman's Kirlia in the Battle Pike nor the Battle Arcade's game board.
