Leaf Guard (Japanese: リーフガード Leaf Guard) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. All Pokémon that have this Ability are Grass types.



In battle

During harsh sunlight, Leaf Guard prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by non-volatile status conditions and Yawn (including via the Flame Orb and Toxic Orb). It has no effect on any current status condition prior to the weather being set up.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is drowsy due to Yawn, if there is harsh sunlight when it would fall asleep, the Ability activates and keeps it awake.

Generation IV

Leaf Guard does not prevent self-inflicted sleep from Rest.

Generation V onward

Leaf Guard now prevents the use of Rest.

Outside of battle

Leaf Guard has no effect outside of battle.
