Rough Skin

Summary: Deals 2% damage to attacking Pokémon on contact; deals 1% damage to the target when using a contact move.

Description

Pokémon with this ability have exceptionally rough, pebbly skin that is so abrasive that even running a hand along it can lead to torn skin and bleeding palms. Any Pokémon making a contact attack against a Pokémon that has this ability, therefore, will take 2% recoil damage, even if the attack used is not directly damaging. This recoil is not prevented by the Rock Head ability. In addition, when this Pokémon makes a contact attack against an opponent, the damage is increased by 1% for the effects of Rough Skin.
