How many Pokémon have this ability

Light Metal is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Currently, five Pokémon have this Ability, all five of which have this Ability by way of the Dream World.




Similar to the Heavy Metal Ability, the Light Metal Ability affects the Pokémon's weight, but the main difference is that Light Metal reduces the weight of its user by 50%. While this reduces the damage that it takes from Grass Knot or Low Kick, the amount of damage that it deals from the moves Heavy Slam or Heat Crash is also reduced.


Light Metal doesn't have an effect in the Overworld.
