Numel's original Ability is the Oblivious Ability, preventing from becoming infatuated with an opposing Pokémon, its lone Ability when it was introduced in Generation III. A second Ability was added in Generation IV, the Simple Ability. This Ability doubles the effectiveness of moves that modify stats, such as Amnesia or an Attack that also affects a stat as a side-effect such as Flame Charge.
