Shed Skin

Description

The wielder has a 1/3 chance of removing its status conditions at the end of each turn. This occurs before burn or poison can damage the wielder.

Competitive Use

Shed Skin is a good ability, but only Scrafty is really able to use it well in the upper tiers. Scrafty also has a far superior second ability in Moxie, but a Bulk Up set with Shed Skin and Rest is a perfectly viable moveset to use, and Shed Skin can help make status an almost non-issue. Other than that though, no other Pokemon can really use it to its full potential.
