Some species of Pokémon have multiple possible Abilities. The most Abilities any species or form has is three: two normal Abilities and one Hidden Ability. In most [[wild Pokémon]] encounters, the Pokémon's Ability will be one of its non-Hidden Abilities (each having an even chance of appearing if the species has two). Hidden Abilities were introduced in [[Generation V]]; they are relatively rare and usually require some type of special encounter.
 
Abilities have been shown in the {{pkmn|anime}}, but are usually only used in {{pkmn|battle}}s; however, sometimes they have an effect on the plot, such as {{TP|Ash|Infernape}}'s {{a|Blaze}}. Abilities sometimes work differently in the anime than they would in the games, such as {{a|Mold Breaker}}, which in the anime cancels out more Abilities than it would in the games.
 
===In the {{series|[[original}} series]]===
The only Ability that was seen in the original series was {{a|Color Change}}, being used by [[Madison and Alexa]]'s {{p|Kecleon}} in ''[[EP205|The Kecleon Caper]]''. It was later used by {{jo|Harrison}}'s Kecleon in ''[[EP271|Playing With Fire!]]''.
 
[[Acerola]]'s Gengar, the Greedy Rapooh, activated its {{a|Cursed Body}} Ability in its fight against [[Kiawe's Marowak]] in ''[[SM131|The Battlefield of Truth and Love!]]''. In the same episode, [[Snowy]] activated its Snow Cloak Ability in its fight against [[Gladion's Umbreon]].
 
===In the {{series|[[new}} series]]===
Six {{p|Darmanitan}} used their Hidden Ability, {{a|Zen Mode}}, in [[SS014]]. One of them was caught by {{an|Go}}.
