Do Pokémon have abilities in Pokémon Legends Arceus?

There’s a short, quick answer and a longer, slightly more confusing answer. The short and quick answer is no, there are no abilities in Pokemon Legends Arceus. They are not in the game, and your Pokémon will never get them or have the ability to use them in or out of battle. Final point. A DLC, in theory, could change that, but we wouldn’t count on that.


You can stop reading here if you’re not interested in the nitty-gritty details and speculation. Have a nice day!

Okay, so you’re still here. Technically, buried deep in the code somewhere, Pokemon in Legends Arceus have abilities tied to them. For example, Sneasler has Poison Touch and Pressure. What gives?

Well, the current theory is that in future games, we’ll be able to transfer these Pokemon into a new main game that has abilities. Nintendo has not confirmed this; it’s just a theory and speculation based on the fact that even new Pokémon only seen in Legends Arceus have abilities despite the fact that the game itself doesn’t have any.

That’s all you need to know about whether there are Abilities in Pokemon Legends Arceus. Hopefully this guide helped clear up any confusion. If you still have any outstanding questions, be sure to check out our Wiki Guide for the game.
