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!]]''.
 
===In ''[[Pokémon the {{series|AdvancedSeries: Ruby and Generation}}Sapphire]]''===
The first Ability to be seen other than {{a|Color Change}} was {{a|Rough Skin}}, first seen in ''[[AG019|Sharpedo Attack!]]''. It was used by a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Sharpedo}}.
 
In ''[[AG191|Once More With Reeling!]]'', [[May's Blaziken]] used its Blaze Ability while [[Ash's Sceptile]] used {{a|Overgrow}} during their [[Contest Battle]] in the {{to|Terracotta}} {{pkmn|Contest}}.
 
===In ''[[Pokémon the {{series|Series: Diamond &and Pearl}}]]''===
Abilities proved important in the battles [[Paul]] and {{Ash}} had with [[Roark]]. During Paul's battle in ''[[DP015|Shapes of Things to Come!]]'', his {{TP|Paul|Elekid}} uses Static to paralyze Roark's {{p|Onix}} and {{p|Cranidos}} although the latter shakes it off with {{a|Mold Breaker}}. Paul also deliberately allows his {{TP|Paul|Chimchar}} to take extra damage so that it can activate Blaze. After Ash's first match with Roark ends in defeat, {{an|Brock}} briefly lends him {{TP|Brock|Sudowoodo}} in ''[[DP017|Wild in the Streets!]]'' because its Ability Rock Head makes it similar to Roark's Pokémon Onix, who also had the Ability. During Ash's rematch in ''[[DP018|O'er the Rampardos We Watched!]]'', Pikachu also activates Static against Roark's newly evolved {{TP|Roark|Rampardos}} and it is similarly ineffective.
 
{{a|Illusion}} was seen twice in ''[[M13|Zoroark: Master of Illusions]]'', being used by a {{OBP|Zoroark|M13}} and {{OBP|Zorua|M13}}.
 
===In ''[[Pokémon the {{series|BestSeries: Black & Wishes}}White]]''===
A Hidden Ability was first seen in ''[[BW008|Saving Darmanitan From the Bell!]]'' by a {{p|Darmanitan}} using {{a|Zen Mode}}.
 
In ''[[BW140|Survival of the Striaton Gym!]]'', [[Morana]]'s {{p|Abomasnow}} used its {{a|Snow Warning}} Ability. [[Cilan's Pansage]] was confirmed to have Gluttony as his Ability in the same episode.
 
===In ''[[Pokémon the {{series|Series: XY}}]]''===
[[File:Olympia Meowstic Prankster.png|thumb|250px|[[Olympia]]'s {{p|Meowstic}} activating {{a|Prankster}}]]
[[Clemont's Chespin]] used its Ability {{a|Overgrow}} in ''[[XY015|An Appetite for Battle!]]'' battling against a {{p|Delphox}}.
In the [[Lumiose Conference]], many Pokémon were seen activating their Abilities during battles. In ''[[XY125|A League of His Own!]]'', {{an|Trevor}}'s Mega {{TP|Trevor|Charizard}} Y was shown to have {{a|Drought}} as its Ability. In the [[XY126|following episode]], the effects of three different Abilities were shown during the battle between {{an|Tierno}} and [[Sawyer]]; Tierno's {{p|Ludicolo}} was shown activating {{a|Swift Swim}} while Sawyer's Mega {{TP|Sawyer|Sceptile}} and {{p|Aegislash}} were revealed to have {{a|Lightning Rod}} and {{a|Stance Change}} as their Abilities, respectively. In ''[[XY127|Analysis Versus Passion!]]'', Sawyer's {{p|Slaking}} was shown to have Truant as its Ability. In ''[[XY130|Finals Not for the Faint-Hearted!]]'', Alain's {{p|Tyranitar}} was shown activating {{a|Sand Stream}}.
 
===In ''[[Pokémon the {{series|Series: Sun & Moon}}]]''===
[[Sophocles's Togedemaru]] used her Ability Lightning Rod in ''[[SM002|The Guardian's Challenge!]]'', absorbing Ash's Pikachu's {{m|Thunderbolt}} to increase the power of her {{m|Zing Zap}}.
 
[[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 ''[[newPokémon Journeys: The seriesSeries]]''===
Six {{p|Darmanitan}} used their Hidden Ability, {{a|Zen Mode}}, in [[JN014]]. One of them was caught by [[Goh]].
