Effect

In-Game

When it was first introduced in Generation III, along with Generation IV as well, the user of this Ability would receive a Special Attack increase by 50% when battling with a Pokémon that had the Plus Ability. This restriction was lifted as of Generation V, as the Special Attack boost now takes effect when battling alongside a Pokémon that has either Plus or Minus.

Overworld

Minus doesn't have an effect in the overworld.
