===Generation IV===
Multitype changes the [[type]] of the Pokémon with this Ability depending on the [[Plate]] attached. The item-removing effects of {{m|Thief}}, {{m|Covet}}, {{m|Trick}}, {{m|Switcheroo}}, and {{m|Knock Off}} will not work on a Pokémon with Multitype, regardless of what item it is holding.
This Ability cannot be transferred with {{m|Skill Swap}} or copied with {{a|Trace}} or {{m|Role Play}}. If any Pokémon other than {{p|Arceus}} has this Ability, it does not work. Multitype cannot be suppressed by {{m|Gastro Acid}} or changed by {{m|Worry Seed}}.
A Pokémon with Multitype cannot be affected by type changing moves, such as {{m|Soak}}. A Pokémon with Multitype is unaffected by {{m|Entrainment}} and {{m|Simple Beam}}. Multitype cannot turn into {{a|Mummy}}.
