Sturdy is a very... iffy ability. It basically grants the same effect as the focus sash by default, and it is often found on pokemon that have weaknesses crippling enough to reliably one shot them. However, there are many things which bypass it, namely traps and weather, since as soon as your pokemon isn't at full health you're vulnerable. The other thing sturdy does, which I'm not 100% sure about, is immunity to moves like guillotine, fissure, and sheer cold. If it still has that effect after the gen 5 change, I think so anyways. 5/10

Next up, solar power.

Solar Power doesn't seem like a particularly useful ability. It's completely useless unless there is harsh sunlight, and while the 1.5x for special attack is nice, it also cuts into your HP. Overall, not a great ability. 4 out of 10.

The next ability is Run Away.

Run Away is only convenient when you need to escape from Pokemon that use moves like mean look or have abilities like arena trap. Unless you are being swarmed by Digletts, there isn't really a lot of application for this move. To make matters worse, Run Away does nothing as far as battling goes. It would be nice if it could allow you to recall your Pokemon from trapping moves like bind or fire spin, at least then it would serve some sort of purpose. Overall, it is a very underwhelming move that is only slightly convenient in some situations. I rate it a 2/10.

The next ability to rate is Prankster.

Any ability that can gain attack priority over other moves in a good one, and prankster is no different. To have the ability to inflict status conditions onto other Pokémon, even if they have quick guard (in gen V at least) is a big advantage to sticking first or having better stats. Obviously the ability isn’t that good, as it only affects a variety of moves and can now be blocked by quick guard, the ability is still a quality one and I’d rate it a 6/10

The next ability is infiltrator.

Infiltrator is an ok ability. It allows your Pokemon to bypass the effects of Reflect, Light Screen, Mist, and Substitute. However, if your opponent doesn't use one of these moves, it's pretty useless. It's an ability that is really only useful is specific situations. 5 out of 10.

The next ability is Levitate.

Levitate is fantastic. Not only do you dodge all ground type attacks (which is arguably the best offensive typing in the game, or at least top 3), you also dodge all entry hazards sans stealth rock. The ability literally has no drawbacks. Top tier ability for sure.

Pressure is a really annoying ability. It isn't that good when your Pokemon has it, but it's annoying as heck when your opponent has it. Kind of like Zubat lol. In a competitive battle most moves have enough PP for Pressure to not be a huge deal, and in an offline battle such as against a gym leader or a member of the Elite 4, your opponent's Pokemon don't last long enough for it to have much of an impact. However, if the gym leader or Elite 4 member has a few Pokemon with Pressure, it can cause a lot of problems for you. For example, both of Phoebe's Dusclops have Pressure in the Hoenn games, and they do a number on your PP, especially if you don't one-shot them. That being said, if the Pokemon survives for enough turns in a competitive battle, Pressure could become troublesome for your opponent. 6 out of 10.

The next ability is Rock Head.

Rock Head has an interesting concept but I don't know how useful it is competitively. I find the alternative, Reckless, to be a lot better as during competitive play I'd rather have a bit more power than to not take some recoil. Most Rock Head Pokemon are slow anyway so they'll take plenty of hits and damage regardless of the ability. 5/10

Cursed Body is a pretty cool ability. having a chance to disable your opponent's move any time they use a physical attack on your can come in handy. That being said, the ability can be ignored altogether by using special attacks instead of physical ones. Overall, I'll give it a 7 out of 10.

The next ability is Effect Spore.

Effect Spore is a funny ability. I've actually tried to use it competitively before and it has minor success some battles. Getting that clutch sleep or that clutch paralysis can really turn the tides of the battle. I tried it with a sashed Parasect and the thing actually put in a decent amount of work. Now I got lucky throughout that entire fight obviously but I think it ended up getting 4 kills before finally going down. All thanks to effect spore too. It's an infuriating ability in game though. Once a wild Shroomish has you trapped there is never an escape. 4/10

Fur Coat is a useful ability that reduces damage taken from physical attacks by 50%. Even though Furfrou and Alolan Meowth are the only pokemon that can get this ability, it is a very useful one to have both in-game and competitively since it essentially doubles your defense stat in battle. Overall I think it deserves a solid 8/10.

Super Luck is a pretty good ability. Critical hits are super useful in battle not only because they increase damage, but also because they ignore stat modifiers. Pairing Super Luck with an attack like Slash could make your Pokemon quite the threat. I'll rate it a 7 out of 10.

Slow Start is easily right up there with Truant as one of the worst abilities in the game. For 5 turns, your attack and speed stats (arguably the most important stats) are cut in half. Thankfully, Regigigas is the only pokemon that has this ability, because it is just too much of a handicap for normal pokemon to handle. Even a Regigigas with a monstrous base 160 attack and 100 speed is harmless until turn 6 when it gains access to its full power. A lot can happen in 5 turns and this crippling ability prevents an otherwise strong pokemon from being used more often in competitive battling. I rate it a 1/10 as it serves no purpose.

Sand Stream can be a really useful ability. It creates a sandstorm, which causes damage to Pokemon that aren't rock, ground, or steel type, and also raises the special defense of rock type Pokemon. It can also be used to reverse current weather conditions, if your opponents Pokemon has created a weather condition that is beneficial for them. Overall, a pretty solid ability, 8 out of 10.

Early Bird is a bad ability. Yeah you'll sleep for less longer but how often would you really need that anyway? Get a better ability for your Pokemon, 2/10

Inner focus is a decent ability, but not great. Preventing flinching is nice, but how often are you in a situation when you will flinch anyway? It protects you from Fake Out I suppose, but that's about it. All in all, not that useful. I'll give it a 4 out of 10.

Clear Body is nice as stat drops are always annoying. It still doesn't eliminate your own stat drops from moves like Leaf Storm though so chances are its only use would be to stop intimidate and sticky webs. 6/10

Compound Eyes is a pretty solid ability. It is great in that it makes moves like Thunder, Blizzard, Fire Blast, and other high power moves with typically low accuracy a lot more usable. Overall I'll give it an 8 out of 10.

Pickup is a god send depending on the game that you play. In Ruby/Sapphire it was entirely broken, being able to get high level items, including rare candies, before the first gym.
Even after it was nerfed to depend on your level, it was still a decent ability. If you have any space to spare, pick up a few pokemon with this ability to greatly increase your money, depending on the game.

I guess I'll rate Pickup as well then. It's a very solid ability to have in game when you don't have your full team of 6 yet. Put a zigzagoon or an Aipom with it on your team and it will give you all sorts of neat stuff. In battle it has a very specific use as well as it allows you to pick up items that were used up previously (things like berries, for example). This should almost never happen to you though. 7/10
