Cacophony (Ability)

Pokemon with this ability All abilities Comments

Cacophony is an unused Ability introduced in Generation III. Its effect is identical to Soundproof: it negates the effects of sound-based moves on the user with this Ability. It exists only in Generation III games, having been removed in Generation IV. No Pokemon have it, and it cannot be acquired by normal means.

Due to its use on the Exploud card released in Great Encounters, it is possible that this Ability was initially intended to be related to the Whismur family. The reason for the change is unknown, given several other Abilities are equivalent in effect to another (such as Air Lock and Cloud Nine).
