When Darmanitan's HP drops to below half, it will change into its Zen Mode at the end of the turn, which is a dual-type Fire/Psychic form. If it loses its Ability, or recovers HP to above half while in its Zen Mode, it will change back to its Standard Mode. Darmanitan will revert back to Standard Mode outside of battle and enters battle in Standard Mode, even if its HP is below half.
This Ability only works on Darmanitan, even if it is copied by Entrainment or Trace. Zen Mode cannot be copied by Role Play or swapped by Skill Swap.
Outside of battle
Zen Mode has no effect outside of battle.
