Victory Star (Japanese: しょうりのほし Victory Star) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. It is the signature Ability of Victini.


In battle

Victory Star increases the accuracy of moves used by the Pokémon with this Ability and its allies in battle by 10% of their original accuracy. Victory Star can stack and does so multiplicatively (which means if there are two ally Pokémon with this Ability, the accuracy increase is 21%).

Outside of battle

Victory Star has no effect outside of battle.

Victini appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon, after playing 100-Man Smash at least once. It uses Victory Star, which causes fighters (and teammates, if any) who send it out to gain immunity to knockback and have their attack power boosted.

Victini returns as a Pokémon summoned from the Poké Ball, where it gives the summoner their Final Smash with Victory Star.
