When a Pokémon with Motor Drive is hit by an Electric-type move, its Speed is increased by one stage, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon.
Multi-strike moves that are turned into Electric-type moves, such as by being affected by Electrify or Galvanize, will only activate this Ability once. Motor Drive will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Electric-type move.
If a Pokémon with Motor Drive is holding a Cell Battery, Motor Drive absorbs the move so the Cell Battery's effect is not triggered.
Outside of battle
Motor Drive has no effect outside of battle.
