Echolocation (Japanese: ソナー Sonar) is a Kroel-exclusive ability. Seven Pokemon have this ability.
|Echolocation (ソナー Sonar)|
Tracks down the foe using sonar.
Echolocation has two effects. First, it prevents a foe from fleeing as long as the user remains in battle; if the user switches out, the affected Pokemon can switch out or flee on the next turn. Second, if a Pokemon that has Echolocation as an ability uses a move that hits an opponent, the move will always be a critical hit.
Outside of battleEdit
A Pokemon with Echolocation will encounter wild Pokemon twice as often as a normal Pokemon.
