Lightning rod forces all single-target Electric-type moves used by foes to strike the Pokémon with this Ability and by allies to strike the Pokémon with this Ability, also Electric-type moves used by allies will never miss the Pokémon with this Ability. Electric-type moves used by foes and allies will never miss the Pokémon with this Ability.
Lightning Rod also gives the Pokémon immunity to all Electric-type moves, and raises the Pokémon's Special Attack by one stage whenever they are hit by one. This effect will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Electric-type move.
If the Pokémon is Ground-type, its type-granted immunity to damaging Electric-type moves and Electric-type Thunder Wave takes precedence over the Ability so the Pokémon's Special Attack will not be raised, unless it is holding a Ring Target.
Lightningrod can redirect Electric-type Hidden Power, Judgment, or Natural Gift
If another Pokémon becomes the center of attention, Electric-type moves will be directed to it instead of the Pokémon with Lightningrod.
If a Pokémon with Lightning Rod is holding a Cell Battery, Lightning Rod absorbs the move so the Cell Battery's effect is not triggered.
In Triple Battles, Lightning Rod cannot redirect Electric-type moves if the Pokémon is out of range.
Outside of battle
Lightning Rod has no effect outside of battle.
