|Heart of Justice|
Justified (Japanese: せいぎのこころ Heart of Justice) is an Ability introduced in Generation V.
When a Pokémon with Justified is hit by a Dark-type damaging move, its Attack is increased by one stage. This ability does not provide immunity or reduction to the damage, nor does it activate from a Dark-type move hitting its Substitute. Dark-type multi-strike moves (such as Beat Up) will activate Justified once per strike, increasing the Attack stat that many stages.
Outside of battle
Justified has no effect outside of battle.
