Unlike most other stats, Evasion is a stat that is no different for any Pokémon. This helps to determine if the opponent will land the attack it's attempting to hit with in battle.

The higher the defending Pokémon's evasion, the better the chance it has of dodging. Conversely, the lower the defending Pokémon's evasion is, the less likely it will dodge the attack.

Evasion is affected by many factors, from certain abilities to the various moves that a Pokémon can learn.

Starting in Generation VI, Pokémon with the Keen Eye Ability will also ignore Evasion boosts by opposing Pokémon.
