Description

When the Pokémon is in Disguised Form and takes damage from opposing Pokémon, the Pokémon with this Ability has its HP decreased by a set percentage of its remaining HP, nullifies damage for a set amount of time, and changes to Busted Form. At the same time, a revenge mark is applied to the opposing Pokémon that dealt the damage. The Pokémon with this Ability increases in movement speed when approaching revenge-marked opposing Pokémon and deals increased damage to them. If the Pokémon remains in Busted Form for a set amount of time, it returns to Disguised Form. If the Pokémon knocks out an opposing Pokémon, the time it takes to return to Disguised Form is decreased.
