Several characteristics may make a Pokémon ungrounded.
A Pokémon is ungrounded if any of the following apply (and there is no effect that makes it grounded).
- It has the Flying type.
- It has the Ability Levitate.
- It is holding an Air Balloon.
- It is under the effect of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis.
Some of these characteristics can be negated by certain moves or Abilities, such as Gastro Acid or Klutz. Additionally, if a Pokémon with Mold Breaker, Turboblaze, or Teravolt uses a move, Pokémon that are only ungrounded due to Levitate are treated as if they were grounded for the execution of that move.
By default, grounded Pokémon are simply those that are not ungrounded. However, there are also several effects that will negate a Pokémon's ungrounded status, making it grounded.
A Pokémon will be grounded if any of the following apply.
- It is holding an Iron Ball.
- It is under the effect of Ingrain (Generation IV onward) or Smack Down/Thousand Arrows.
- Gravity is in effect.
Effects of grounded status
Ungrounded Pokémon are also immune to:
- the entry hazards Spikes, Toxic Spikes, and Sticky Web.
- the move Rototiller.
- the effects of terrain.
- the Ability Arena Trap.
