Where to find an Ability Capsule in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Some Pokémon are usually born with two abilities. For example, a Ralts can spawn with Trace and Synchronize. Ability Capsules allow you to swap out a Pokémon’s abilities for one it doesn’t have. Here’s where to find an Ability Capsule in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Skill Capsules can be purchased at any Chansey Supply shop once you finish the main story. Worth ₽100,000. Chansey’s supplies can be found in Mesagoza, Cascarrafa, Levincia, and Montenevera.

If you’re late enough in the game to find six-star Tera Raids, Skill Capsules will sometimes drop from them as well. You’ll know it’s a six-star Tera Raid if the star symbol used to make the Tera crystals on your map is black.

Each Pokemon also has a hidden ability. Instead of a Skill Capsule, you’re going to need a skill patch if you want to access his hidden ability. Skill patches cannot be purchased. They are only dropped as a reward after six-star Tera Raids. It’s also not a guarantee that you’ll get one.

Of course, just because ability patches are rare doesn’t mean hidden abilities are the best your Pokémon can have. For example, an Ursaring with Guts and Quick Feet, which increases stats after suffering status effects, is arguably better compared to one with Unnerve (its hidden ability). Unnerve prevents opposing Pokémon from eating berries. Sometimes it’s good for PvP, but Guts and Quick Feet are better for general use and most battles. Simply equip Ursaring with an item that inflicts auto-stat!
