Defiant

Description

Whenever an attack by an opposing Pokemon or an ability from an opposing Pokemon causes a stat stage of the wielder to be reduced, its Attack is raised by 2 stages. Defiant triggers once for each different stat stage reduced.

Competitive Use

Braviary and Primeape have access to Superpower and Close Combat respectively, but Defiant isn't triggered by self-inflicted stat drops, so this makes the entire ability slightly worse. However, it is still useful for preventing the effects of Intimidate for Bisharp, Braviary, and Primeape.
