Lightning Rod

Summary: Absorbs Electric moves, raising Special Attack by one stage, unless the Pokémon is already immune. Redirects single-target Electric moves to this Pokémon where possible.

Description

A Pokémon with this ability generally is tall or has some prominent feature that will draw lightning strikes, and it has adapted to use the energy conferred by such strikes to fuel their own attacks. These Pokémon are always the ones to be struck by an Electric attack aimed in their general direction, allowing them to draw attacks away from partners or other Pokémon in the area, and they are immune to all of their effects. However, as a result of electricity's attraction to them, an Electric attack aimed even only in their general direction is likely to strike true. If a non-Ground-type with this ability is struck by an Electric-type attack, its Special Attack will also rise one level.
