===Generation VI onwards===
Substitute no longer blocks {{cat|sound-based moves}} (such as {{m|Metal Sound}}) or any moves used by Pokémon with the Ability {{a|Infiltrator}}, except {{m|Transform}} and {{m|Sky Drop}}. The moves {{m|Hyperspace Hole}}, {{m|Hyperspace Fury}}, {{m|Play Nice}}, and {{m|Spectral Thief}} can also bypass a substitute. {{m|Aromatherapy}} can still heal the user's status conditions if it is behind a Substitute, but will now fail to affect an ally behind a Substitute.
If powered up by a [[Normalium Z]] into Z-Substitute, all of the user's lowered stats are reset.
