Lingering Aroma (Japanese: とれないにおい Lingering Scent) is an Ability introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature Ability of male Oinkologne.

Reason: Check if these Abilities are unaffected: Gulp Missile, Hunger Switch, Protosynthesis, Quark Drive, Orichalcum Pulse, Hadron Engine (also cf. Mummy).

When a Pokémon with Lingering Aroma is hit by a contact move, the attacker's Ability is changed to Lingering Aroma. The attacker regains its original Ability once it is switched out, faints, or the battle ends.
If a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a multi-strike move that makes contact (such as Fury Swipes), the attacking Pokémon's Ability will become Lingering Aroma after the first strike.
If a Pokémon with Rock Head uses a recoil contact move on a Pokémon with Lingering Aroma, its Ability will become Lingering Aroma, then subsequently it will take recoil damage.
Multitype, Zen Mode, Stance Change, Shields Down, Schooling, Disguise, Battle Bond, Power Construct, Comatose, RKS System, Ice Face, As One, Zero to Hero, Commander, Mummy, and Lingering Aroma itself are not affected by Lingering Aroma.
