Magma Armor (Japanese: マグマのよろい Magma Armor) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Three Pokémon can have this Ability, all of which are Fire types.

Effect

In battle

Magma Armor prevents the Pokémon from being frozen.

A Pokémon with this Ability will be thawed out if it is frozen while in battle (such as if it gains the Ability outside of battle or by an effect like Skill Swap, or is frozen by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker). If the Pokémon is holding an Aspear Berry or a Lum Berry, it will be eaten before Magma Armor thaws out the Pokémon.

Outside of battle

If a frozen Pokémon gains Magma Armor by evolution or the Ability Capsule, it will not be thawed out until sent into battle. Pokémon with Magma Armor will not be frozen by the Gentleman's Dusclops in the Battle Pike nor the Battle Arcade's game board.

From Pokémon Emerald onward, Magma Armor halves the number of cycles it takes for all Pokémon Eggs in the party to hatch. This effect does not stack with itself nor Flame Body.
