How many Pokémon have this ability
Zen Mode is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Only one Pokémon has this ability.




When Darmanitan's HP drops to half of it's total value or below, it will change into it's Zen Form at the end of the turn. If it's HP were to be revitalised by any means, it will revert back to it's original Forme. This ability is exclusive to Darmanitan and as such can only be used by this Pokémon, even if Role Play, Entrainment or Trace are in play. It is also ineffective when Skill Swap is used. The Zen Mode of Darmanitan is part Psychic type and also has higher Special Attack then the original Darmanitan.


Zen Mode doesn't have an effect in the overworld.
