Static is a Pokémon ability introduced in the third generation. Pokémon with Static can cause paralysis when hit


Static with Pokémon has a 30% chance to paralyze the attacking Pokémon that uses a move that makes contact. This can affect Ground types. Multistrike moves that make contact have chance on each hit.

Since Pokémon Emerald, if a Pokémon with Static is in the first place in the party (even if fainted), then there is a 50% chance the game will force an encounter with an Electric-type Pokémon, if one is possible.
