Marvel Scale is a pretty good ability. If you are at a disadvantage because of a status condition, Marvel Scale neutralizes it by increasing your defense pretty significantly. This is good for the obvious reason that your defense is higher if you're poisoned, burned, or paralyzed, however it's also beneficial for the less obvious reason that your opponent will be less likely to inflict a status condition on you if he or she knows that it will increase your defense. I'll rate it an 8 out of 10.

The next ability to rate is Thick Fat.

Thick fat is fantastic. Becoming resistant to two of the most offensive types out there - fire and ice - will always be a huge help. Then when you have bulky Pokemon like Mega Venusaur getting this ability and it becomes almost broken. Easily a 9/10

The next ability to rate will be Sand Rush

Sand Rush is a pretty solid ability, if the Pokemon knows the move Sandstorm. It results in increased speed, in addition to the regular benefits of Sandstorm. If the Pokemon doesn't know Sandstorm though, or you aren't a huge fan of weather moves like me, then it is kind of useless. 6 out of 10.

The next ability to rate is Swift Swim.

Swift Swim is similar to Sand Rush as it increases speed in rain. Useful, but with Drizzle now only lasting 5-8 turns it got significantly nerfed. 7/10

The next ability is Sheer Force

I'm honestly not really sure how I feel about Sheer Force. For some moves it's good I guess, but for others I think I'd rather have the additional effect. It can be good situationally, but overall I'll rate it a 5 out of 10.

The next ability is Gale Wings.

Gale Wings would've received a 10/10 in generation 6. In generation 7 however it was nerfed to oblivion. It now only takes effect when you're on full HP. That means that Talonflame, who mainly uses recoil moves like Flare Blitz and Brave Bird, has no more use for it. Can't even priority roost anymore for free health. 4/10 in generation 7.

The next ability is Skill Link

Skill Link is an incredibly overpowered ability. It turns moves like Bullet Seed, Icicle Spear, Pin Missile, and Rock Blast into 125 power / 90-100 accuracy moves. It also turns Spike Cannon into a 100 power / 100 accuracy move. It's usefulness is limited to certain Pokemon with certain movesets, but with those Pokemon it is great. 10 out of 10.

The next ability is Arena Trap.

Arena Trap is underrated. Sure, in game it's not that useful as very few trainers have the AI level to switch out their Pokemon. In competitive play however it's fantastic. It used to be even better before generation 5 I think, because there would be no team preview back then. Dugtrio was always a fear in the back of your mind so this ability deserves a 10/10

The next ability is Huge Power

Huge Power is a really good ability to have since it basically doubles your attack stat. This is why pokemon with weak attack stats like Azumarill and Diggersby (at 50 and 56 respectively) are able to completely abuse this this ability and punch holes in teams. This is also why Mega Mawile is so godly in competitive, it essentially has a colossal base attack stat of 210. Nothing is surviving. I rate this ability 10/10 overall.

The next ability to rate is Disguise.

Honestly, I don't know too much about that ability. It's exclusive to Mimikyu from the gen 7 games, which (other than Let's Go Eevee) I haven't played. It seems pretty solid, but the explanation on Bulbapedia is a little convoluted, so I'm not sure I'm understanding it correctly. I'll hesitantly give it an 8 out of 10.

The next ability is Shadow Tag.

Shadow Tag is great to have. Completely trapping your opponent (exception being ghost types) is so slept on. It's pretty much the sole reason Mega Gengar was banned from OU and put into Ubers. And who hasn't had a horror story with an unexpected Wobuffet. 9/10

The next ability to rate will be Liquid Ooze.

Liquid Ooze is a pretty cool ability. Attacking moves that restore HP can be really annoying, so having preventative measures to fight against that would be beneficial. That being said, there aren't an overwhelming amount of those moves, so in a lot of situations the ability won't do anything. Still a solid ability though, I rate it an 8 out of 10.

The next ability is Natural Cure.

Natural Cure is so useful. Fighting one of those annoying Static Pokemon? No worries, just switch out! Got burned by Blaine? Better have burn heal just switch out! It's an ability made for the lazy people who can't be bothered to enter their bag and look for 2 minutes to find an Ice Heal, so I love it. 9/10

Regenerator is an awesome ability, especially in competitive battles or when challenging the Pokemon League. Being able to recover a significant amount of HP when switching out is extremely beneficial. 10 out of 10.

The next ability is Magnet Pull.

Magnet Pull is pretty bad in game, but competitively it really changed the meta game. There's this one steel bird called Skarmory that was feared by all in the OU tier, so when Magneton got this ability it finally gave us a hard check for Skarmory. It's been the bane of Skarmory's existence ever since (though it's still great in battle). 3/10 in game, 10/10 competitively

Oblivious is an ok ability. Falling in love in Pokemon battles is super annoying, and being immune to that is cool, but it doesn't happen all that often. There aren't too many Pokemon out there that have Cute Charm or know the move attract. Additionally, Pokemon of the same gender or genderless Pokemon can't fall in love. So overall, Oblivious doesn't have that much use. I'll rate it a 6 out of 10.

Speaking of which, Cute Charm is the net ability to rate!

Like Oblivious, Cute Charm is an okay ability. It has a 30% chance to inflict infatuation on the attacking pokemon. While this sounds nice, it is only a 30% chance and it does not affect pokemon of the same gender as the pokemon with Cute Charm, genderless pokemon, or pokemon that have the ability oblivious. A lot of pokemon fit one of these three exceptions so it isn't as widely effective. If it does infatuated another pokemon however, there is a 50% it will be 'immobilized by love' and unable to attack, which is never fun. Outside of battle, if the leading pokemon has Cute Charm, the odds of finding a pokemon of the opposite gender increase to 66% if you need that for some reason...Overall, I'll give it a 6/10, it's a pretty average ability that does have some use.

The next ability to rate is Simple.

Simple is a double-edged sword. Sure, your own stat boosts are double effective, but so are negative boosts inflicted by your opponent. Depending on your opponent's strategy, you can get yourself in a real bad situation pretty quick.
5/10

Up next is Adaptability, a personal favorite of mine.

Adaptability is honestly one of the best abilities in the game. Getting what basically is a super effective hit on all moves that share your typing is always valuable and makes switching into these pokemon extremely hard. There's a reason why Mega Lucario is straight up Ubers.

10/10 would Adaptability again
