Dark Aura (Ability)
Dark Aura (Japanese: ダークオーラ Dark Aura) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature Ability of Yveltal.
Dark Aura increases the power of Dark-type attacks by approximately 33% (or more accurately, by a factor of 5448/4096) for all Pokémon on the field. This effect is inverted by Aura Break, instead dividing the power of Dark-type attacks by 4/3, resulting in a 25% reduction in damage.
The effects will not stack multiple times if more than one Pokémon has this Ability.
Outside of battle
Dark Aura has no effect outside of battle.
