Pokemon with this ability All abilities Comments


In battle

Illuminate has no effect during battle.

In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and the sequel, a Pokemon with Illuminate "blinks" after a turn in which it was damaged. The "blink" summons a hostile Pokemon somewhere on the floor.

Outside of battle

If a Pokemon with Illuminate is leading the party, the wild Pokemon encounter rate is increased to 200%. It shares this trait with Arena Trap.
