In this metagame you have the opportunity to give your Pokémon one extra ability, but this comes at a cost. This extra ability can only be placed in the item slot. This means not running Leftovers, Choice items, or Heavy Duty Boots, but in return you could run Regenerator, Adaptability, or Magic Guard.

Q: How do give my Pokemon its second ability?
A: Click Import / Export then type in the ability name where an item would usually go, including the @ that is used, then click Save.
Q: Can I carry an item at the same time I have a second ability?
A: No you cannot. This is a decision we made to keep the metagame balanced and not a coding limitation, and will not be changing.
Q: How do abilities that are hard-coded to Pokémon such as Stance Change or Gulp Missile work?
A: These abilities work as they usually do when in the main slot. When they are put in the item slot they will work only on their native user, although they are legal on other Pokémon.
Q: Can my abilities be Knocked Off, Tricked, Flung, or otherwise removed by item-specific effects?
A: No, they cannot.
Q: Do abilities stack?
A: No. For example, Regenerator + Regenerator only restores 33%, not 67%.
Q: Where is this metagame playable?
A: Playable on Trashchannel! Shoutouts CringeMeta
