Aurora Veil (Japanese: オーロラベール Aurora Veil) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation VII. It was TM70 in Generation VII.

Effect

Aurora Veil reduces the damage done to the user by physical and special moves for five turns by half; in battles with allies, Aurora Veil protects the user and all allies, but only reduces damage by a third rather than half. It does not reduce damage done by self-inflicted confusion damage, critical hits, or moves that deal direct damage. Aurora Veil can only be used during hail, but the effect remains even after the hail ends; Cloud Nine and Air Lock will cause Aurora Veil to fail even if it is hailing.

While it can be active at the same time as Reflect and Light Screen, the damage reduction effects do not stack. Aurora Veil is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by Brick Break, Defog, or Psychic Fangs, or if a Pokémon with Screen Cleaner is sent out. Pokémon with the Ability Infiltrator ignore the effects of Aurora Veil when attacking.

If a Light Clay is held when Aurora Veil is used, it will extend the duration of Aurora Veil from 5 to 8 turns.

If powered up by an Icium Z into Z-Aurora Veil, the user's Speed stat rises by one stage.
