Stalwart Pokemon: Everything You Need to Know
Stalwart is Duraludon's Hidden Ability that ignores the effects of opposing Pokémon's Abilities and moves that draw in moves. Move such as Taunt, and Follow Me won't work on this Pokemon with Stalwart. Abilities like Rough Skin and Static won't affect Duraludon, because it ignores the effects.
Duraludon was already a sought after Pokemon for those wanting new Dragons in Sword and Shield, but Stalwart makes the Pokemon a must-have.
Pokemon Sword and Shield is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
