Cursed Body (Ability)

In battle: really odd phrasing
If the Pokémon with this Ability is hit by an opponent's damaging move, Cursed Body has a 30% chance of {{m|Disable|disabling}} that move for 3 turns (including the turn Cursed Body activates). Cursed Body can activate even if the attacker is behind a {{m|substitute}} or if the Pokémon with Cursed Body is knocked out, but will not activate if the Pokémon with Cursed Body is behind a substitute.
If Cursed Body disables a [[multi-strike move]] before it has finished all of its hits, it will not prevent the other hits from being executed. Cursed Body can disable a {{cat|Moves that call other moves|move that calls another move}} if the called move was dealingdealt damage.
Cursed Body can disable a [[Z-Move]] even though they are only able to be used once per battle. This has no effect on the original move that was upgraded into the Z-Move.
