How many Pokémon have this ability

Stall is an Ability that was introduced in Generation IV. Currently, only one Pokémon can have this Ability: Sableye.



In Battle

A Pokémon with Stall will always attack after its opponent.

If a Pokémon with Stall and its opposing Pokémon use attacks of the same priority, the Pokémon with Stall will always go last. If both Pokémon have Stall, the faster of the two Pokémon will move last. If a Pokémon with Stall is facing a Pokémon with a Full Incense or Lagging Tail, the Pokémon holding the Full Incense or Lagging Tail will move last. If a Pokemon with Stall holds either of these two items, Stall's effects are negated. Stall also ignores all effects of Trick Room.

In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, a Pokémon with Stall will only attack a foe that is directly in front of it.


Stall doesn't have an effect in the overworld.
