Effect[edit | edit source]
In battle[edit | edit source]
Protean changes the type of the Pokémon to be the same as the move it is about to use, excluding the move Struggle. This will then always results in a STAB (same-type attack bonus) if the move causes damage. The type of the user will only change upon using a move of a new type or switching the Pokémon out of battle. If the latter occurs, when sent back into battle, it will regain its original typing.
Outside of battle[edit | edit source]
Protean has no effect outside of battle.
