List of Abilities (Conquest)

050Diglett.png This article is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this article to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Research on several effects:
  • For effects that raise or lower stats, by how much are the stats changed? (is it 1 stage, for example?)
  • For effects that recover HP, how much HP is restored?
  • For effects that "may" have some effect, what is their chance to activate?
  • For effects that increase or decrease damage (such as Aqua Boost, Flame Boost, Sniper; or Thick Fat, Solid Rock), by how much is the damage increased or decreased?
  • How is "favorite terrain" determined for Stealth?

Abilities in Pokémon Conquest are very similar to Abilities in the main series games, activating when certain conditions are met. Many Abilities are the same between Pokémon Conquest and the main series, while others are unique.
