candidate for worst ability

alolan marowak can have lightning rod.

alolan marowak is fire/ghost.

it is not a special tank.

all it does is guarantee marowak gets mogged by literally any electric attack because lightning rod bypasses accuracy to always attract the electric move.

not as horrible as truant or defeatist but this screams of overlooked

    Lightning Rod gives an electric immunity and is the only reason it’s even viable you dumb autist, play the game

    The only acceptable answer to is Leaf Guard (I’m assuming solely detrimental abilities are not allowed)
    >Makes user immune to status but only in Sun
    >but many Grass types get already Aromatherapy, which heals status for the entire team, meaning even if the Pokémon with Leaf Guard can’t get statused its teammates can, so it still needs Aromatherapy anyway. The only use for LG would be to prevent the Pokémon from being put to sleep or frozen since those prevent the Pokémon from using moves.
    >However, Grass types are immune to powder moves, making them immune to Sleep Power and Spore. The only other Sleep move worth worrying about is Lovely Kiss and only Jynx gets that and it would most likely just use an ice move against a Grass type anyways. Every other Sleep move has such low accuracy that that aren’t worth using.
    >As for Freeze, Pokémon can not become Frozen when there is sun
    >Finally, there’s a similar ability call Hydration that works in Rain instead of sun, which is used to get get Rests without being asleep for two turn. However Leaf Guard can not be used to get free Rests in Sun due to a technicality, Leaf Guard prevents status from happening at all rather than immediately healing it like Hydration does.

      It's good in vgc, it protects eg Kyogre from single target electric moves.

      This 100%

      Leaf Guard either needs a massive overhaul or a straight-up removal. Latter's probably better because it would force Game Freak to give Meganium an actual ability.

    Blaze/Overgrow/Torrent are some of the lamest and most situational abilities in existence and it's a crime that they keep giving them to starters. Let these Pokemon actually be fun to use in-game for fuck's sake.
