The way this works is exactly the same as the rate the pokemon and move above you threads, except this one is for abilities.

The process is simple. I will post a pokemon ability for the next person to talk about and rate, they'll rate it on a scale of 1-10, give a brief explanation on their rating, and then they will provide a new ability for the next person to rate, so on and so forth until the end of time. Ratings will be on a 1-10 scale. Examples of this are: 2/10, 5/10, 8/10, etc.

The first ability to rate will be Intimidate.

Intimidate is a pretty solid ability, especially in competitive play. I'm pretty terrible at competitive battling, but I've seen clips where people are able to strategically switch Pokemon with Intimidate in and out when they anticipate their opponent with use Protect to lower their opponents attack over and over again. Overall I'll give it a 9 out of 10, being able to lower your opponent's attack is always beneficial.

The next ability is Soundproof.

Soundproof is really situational. Against some Pokemon it's really useful but it's more of an in game thing as it blocks annoying moves like supersonic and growl. Competitively it's not very viable.

The next ability to rate will be Water Absorb.

Water Absord is really only useful if your opponent is really stupid. With the exception of Volcanion, the Wooper line, and the Palpitoad line, all of the Pokemon that have it are already resistant to water, so it wouldn't make sense for your opponent to use a water type move against them. I suppose it helps if you're in a double battle and your opponent has a Pokemon with Surf, as it will dis-incentivize (is that a word?) him from using it, even if your other Pokemon is weak against water. For the most part though, not a particularly useful ability in most circumstances. I'll give it a 6 out of 10.

The next ability is Shadow Tag.

Water absorb is also a bit situational since it requires you to be hit by a water type attack to activate. Even if you are hit by a water type move, you are only recovering 1/4 of your hp. In game, it would be better to heal using a potion instead of relying on passive recovery on the chance you are attacked with a water type move. Overall, I rate it a 4/10

The next ability is Sheer Force.

Sheer Force is an ability that I feel is actually kind of overlooked. Lets think about it for a second, right? You have let's say a Rampardos with Sheer Force. You want to use Zen Headbutt. A solid choice. Normally, you'd have a 20% chance to make the enemy Pokemon Flinch. Pretty low if you ask me. Negligible to say the least. But with Sheer Force, it makes the a 0% chance but increased the power of Zen Headbutt by 30% more. So now Zen Headbutt has a power of 110 instead of 80.

That is an amazing increase. 110 power on a move with 90% accuracy and 15 PP. Although, it does give up it's chance to make the enemy Pokemon flinch. I think that the 30% damage increase is good but the flinch could help a lot in the right situation so I'll give Sheer Force a 8.5/10 just because the situational additional effects could help in a pinch.

The next ability up is Guts!

Guts is very situational as most Pokemon who get it are too slow to take advantage of it. Big exception being Swellow of course. It's better in game where everything has stun spore haha

The next ability is Arena Trap

Guts is an interesting ability. It doesn't come into effect unless you have a status problem, but it helps turn that status problem into less of a negative by boosting your attack stat. This is good for two reasons. Obviously the first reason is that if you are poisoned or burned it gives you a better chance to knock out your opponent before you die from that. If you are paralyzed you are slower and may not be able to attack every turn, but when you do attack you pack more of a punch. It also may cause your opponent to not want to inflict a status problem on you, because of the attack increase. That's an additional benefit that you may not think about initially. Overall, I'll give it a 7 out of 10.

The next ability is Inner Focus.

Inner Focus is a pretty average ability to have because it protects from flinch inducing moves like headbutt and fake out. Other than that, it is a very situational ability that isn't bad, but isn't game changing either. Definitely better abilities out there. Overall, I rate it a 5/10.

The next ability to rate is Speed Boost.

Speed boost is amazing for Pokemon that can utilize it well. The most famous Speed Booster is probably Yanmega yet I would argue that it's not among the best. Ninjask and Scolipede are both fantastic at setting up stat boosts and using baton pass to ... pass them around (badum tshh). Mega Blaziken is, well, banned from OU so we don't talk about that.

Next ability is Motor Drive

Motor Drive is a solid situational ability that only a select few Pokemon have. In order for it to take effect and raise your speed, it requires you to be hit by an electric type attack (and oddly enough, all the Pokemon that have Motor Drive as an ability are electric type). While electric type moves are by no means uncommon in-game and in competitive battling, this is still a very specific circumstance which is also unlikely to be met since most opposing Pokemon, competitive or in-game, wouldn't try to attack you with a move that's the same typing you are. Since it's an ability with very limited use and payoff, I'll rate it a 5/10.

The next ability is Levitate.

SacredShadow : Levitate has been the game changer for some pokemon in the past, flying types have the perk of being able to switch in on ground attacks and generally force an opponent to forgo any ground type tactics overall, and several other conditions like arena trap and spikes don't affect flying types either. Levitate grants the same perks to pokemon who aren't flying type, and that's sensational. Unless you're fan rotom, in which case it's just weird. I give it an eight.

Next up, iron fist.

Iron fist is a very good ability. You usually get a lot of coverage punching moves with that ability (elemental punches, shadow punch etc.) however I don't know if it's always the best option. My prime example of this is probably the second most famous Iron Fist pokemon, Conkeldurr. It gets a really strong drain punch and ice punch, but that's about it. People tend to use its other ability, Guts, way more often due to the predictable nature of Iron Fist sets. Still a solid ability though.

The next ability to rate will be Gooey.

Gooey gets an instant 10 out of 10, since it is an ability that only our lord and savior Goomy can have. Seriously though, it is a pretty good ability. The ability to attack first is crucial in Pokemon battles, so any time you can lower your opponent's speed, it's a plus.

The next ability is Overgrow.

Overgrow is pretty bad. I mean when it activates it helps I guess but you'd rather not be below a third of your health. Most grass starters get much better hidden abilities like Venusaur's Clorophyl, Serperior's Contrary etc. Also if you use it to get a powerful Giga Drain off, you'll likely go above a third of your health again which defeats the purpose.

Overgrow is a pretty standard and common ability among grass types, especially starters. Having extra power behind your moves is always nice, but it doesn't activate unless you are at or under 1/3 of your maximum HP. When it does activate however, it is a pretty substantial power up of 50%. While it does require you to be near fainting, it is a pretty decent clutch move with good payoff. I rate it a solid 6/10.

The next ability to rate is Adaptability.

Adaptability is a great ability in my opinion. The STAB increase from 1.5x to 2x is huge. If used by Crawdaunt, for example, it could increase Surf's power from 90 to 180, making it more powerful that Hyper Beam. I'll give it a 9 out of 10.

The next ability is Drought.

Again? Lol.

Inner Focus is pretty average as far as abilities go. Being protected from flinch causing moves is always nice, but Inner Focus is pretty limited in its use outside of that. It also doesn't help that there are other abilities like Mold Break, which ignores the effects of other abilities and can break through Inner Focus. I stand by my previous rating of 5/10.

The next ability to rate is Moxie.

Moxie isn't that great of an ability in my opinion for competitive play, as you will be switching Pokemon in and out a lot. It could be really helpful in regular story mode gameplay though, since you can typically destroy an entire team with one Pokemon. I'll give it a a 7 out of 10.

The next ability is Sturdy.
