Prankster (Japanese: いたずらごころ Teasing Heart) is an Ability introduced in Generation V.

Effect

151Mew.png This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Does it give priority to status Z-Moves? Are all moves that target all Pokémon successful regardless of Dark-type Pokémon? Are Dark-type Pokémon immune to moves called by Prankster Instruct?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

In battle

Generation V

Prankster increases the priority of status moves by one. Any move that is increased in priority from Prankster is not blocked by Quick Guard.

Generation VI

Any status moves used by Pokémon with Prankster now can be blocked by Quick Guard.

Generation VII

Dark-type Pokémon are now immune to opposing Pokémon's moves that gain priority due to Prankster, including moves called by moves that call other moves (such as Assist and Nature Power). Ally Dark-type Pokémon can still be hit by the user's status moves.

Dark-type Pokémon can still bounce moves back with Magic Bounce or Magic Coat; moves that have increased priority due to Prankster which are reflected by Magic Bounce or Magic Coat can affect Dark-type Pokémon, unless the Pokémon that bounced the move with Magic Coat also has Prankster. This does not affect moves that change weather, cause entry hazards, or Trick Room.

Outside of battle

Prankster has no effect outside of battle.
