Stance Change (Ability)

194 bytes added, 12:55, 17 January 2017
The Ability activates prior to and independently of any checks for [[status condition]]s that may stop the execution of the Aegislash's move, such as {{status|sleep}} or {{status|confusion}}.
Stance Change cannot be copied with {{a|Trace}} or {{m|Role Play}}, suppressed with {{m|Gastro Acid}}, or replaced with {{m|SimpleWorry BeamSeed}}, {{m|WorrySimple SeedBeam}}, and {{m|Entrainment}}, fail if the target has the Ability Stance Change. {{m|Skill Swap}} fails if either Pokémon has Stance Change. Stance Change cannot be copied by {{a|Trace}}, {{a|Power of Alchemy}}, or {{a|Receiver}}. Stance Change cannot be replaced by {{a|Mummy}} or suppressed by {{m|Core Enforcer}}. If a Pokémon other than Aegislash obtains Stance Change with {{a|Imposter}} or {{m|Transform}}, the Pokémon will not change Formes.
===In Generation VII===
{{status|Sleep}} and {{status|confusion}} now prevents Aegislash from changing formesFormes.
===Outside of battle===
