| Doubles the power of this Pokémon's "not very effective" attacks.
Tinted Lens (Japanese: いろめがね Tinted Glasses) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Nine Pokémon can have this Ability.
Tinted Lens doubles the power of any moves that the Pokémon uses that are "not very effective" against its targets. If a move is regularly not very effective, and thus normally does half damage, it would therefore do normal damage, while a doubly resisted move (such as a Bug-type move against the Steel/Flying Skarmory) will do half damage rather than one quarter damage.
Outside of battle
Tinted Lens has no effect outside of battle.

This is probably a reference to the idiom "viewing the world through rose-tinted glasses", an expression which means to see good where there is none.
