The Ability Patch is a new Item announced for the Crown Tundra DLC. This item will allow players to change a Pokemon's Ability to a Hidden Ability.
The Ability Capsule, a similar item, only allows Pokemon to change between non-Hidden Abilities. The Ability Patch allows Pokemon to change to a Hidden Ability for the first time, making breeding competitive-ready Pokemon significantly easier.
|Ability Patch||Ability Capsule|
|Ability 1 → Ability 2||X||◯|
|Ability 2 → Ability 1||X||◯|
|Ability → Hidden Ability||◯||X|
|Hidden Ability → Ability||??||X|
This information was not in the official announcement of Pokemon Sword and Shield updates, or on the official site. We'll update with more information when it is confirmed!
|Effect||When used on a Pokémon, its Ability will change to its species’ Hidden Ability, if it has one.|
Inside the Max Lair to the East of Slippery Slope there is an NPC who you can exchange Dynite Ore with for rare items. The Ability Patch is one of these and will cost you 200 Dynite Ore, so time to get cracking on Dynamax Adventures!
Each time you clear a Dynamax Adventure or Crown Tundra Max Raid you will be rewarded with Dynite Ore. More information on Dynamax Adventures can be found at the link below!
If you want to change your Shiny Pokemon's ability to a Hidden Ability, or if you have a 6 IV Pokemon but don't have the Hidden Ability, you can use the Ability Patch to change it. Using the Ability Patch is worth it, especially on a Shiny Pokemon.
Normally, when you get a Fossil Pokemon, it does not have a Hidden Ability. The Ability Patch will allow Fossil Pokemon for which a Hidden Ability exists to switch their Ability to the available Hidden Ability.
You can also use Ability Patch on Pokemon with Hidden Abilities which were available in past events or which are otherwise hard to obtain, such as those which were exclusive to the Dream Radar in previous games. This applies primarily to Legendary Pokemon that cannot be acquired through hatching.
