Vital Spirit
In-game description
Prevents the Pokémon from falling asleep.

Vital Spirit is an ability introduced in Generation 4. So far, 2 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Vital Spirit prevents the Pokémon from being afflicted by sleep. Rest will fail when used by the Pokémon.

A Pokémon with this Ability will wake up if it is asleep in battle (such as if it gains the Ability outside of battle or by an effect like Skill Swap, or is put to sleep by a Pokémon with an Ability like Mold Breaker). If the Pokémon is holding a Chesto Berry or a Lum Berry, it will be eaten before Vital Spirit wakes up the Pokémon.

If a Pokémon with this Ability is drowsy due to Yawn, the Ability activates when it would fall asleep and keeps it awake.

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Vital Spirit is leading the party, the chance of encountering a higher-leveled wild Pokémon increases by 50%. It shares this effect with Hustle and Pressure
