Nosepass can have one of two abilities: Sturdy, an Ability that makes it immune to One-Hit KO Moves, and starting in Generation V, keeps the Pokémon from being KO'd when its HP is full; or Magnet Pull, an Ability that stops Steel Type Pokémon from running or being switched out while the user of this Ability is in battle. Due to switching being prevented, the opponent cannot substitute Pokémon on the same turn in which this Pokémon switches out of battle. Magnett Pull doesn't prevent switching by way of Baton Pass. A third Ability is available to Nosepass from the Dream World, the Sand Force Ability. This Ability increases the attack power of Ground, Rock, and Steel Type Attacks by 33% during a Sandstorm.
