Effect

In battle

Specifically, when a Pokémon with this Ability uses a damaging move, the evasion modifiers of the targets are ignored during accuracy calculation, and the Defense and Special Defense modifiers of the targets are ignored during damage calculation; when a Pokémon with this Ability is targeted by a damaging move, the accuracy modifier of the attacking Pokémon is ignored during accuracy calculation, and the Attack and Special Attack modifiers of the attacking Pokémon are ignored during damage calculation.

Unaware will not prevent the moves Stored Power and Punishment from factoring in the stat changes that determine their power. This Ability has no effect on a Pokémon hurting itself in confusion.

Unaware has no effect outside of battle.
