Gastro Acid is a Poison-type move introduced that was introduced in Generation IV that removes the opponent's ability for one battle.


In battle

This move disables the targets ability and it shall be ignored unless it is switched out. It cannot disable abilities that take place outside of the battle, nor abilities that have effect at the start of the battle because it would be activated before Gastro Acid was used.


  • Even though it is a Poison-type move, Steel-type Pokémon are still affected by it.
  • There are benefits of using Gastro Acid on an ally with negative abilities such as Truant and Defeatist.
