Effect

In battle

Generation VI

Gale Wings increases the priority of Flying-type moves by one. Affected Flying-type attacks and offensive status moves can be blocked by Quick Guard.

This Ability does not increase the priority of Flying-type Hidden Power, Natural Gift, or Judgment, as they are treated as Normal-type moves before being used.

Generation VII onwards

Gale Wings now works only if the user has full HP.

Outside of battle

Gale Wings has no effect outside of battle.
