Absorb is a damage-dealing Grass-type move.

Effect

Absorb does damage, and up to 50% of the damage done to the target is restored to the user, rounded up.

If Absorb breaks a substitute, no HP will be restored to the user.

If Absorb is used on a Pokémon with the Liquid Ooze ability, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.

If the user has a Big Root as its held item, it will recover 30% more HP than it normally would. Big Root does not increase damage dealt. All other effects are the same.

Description

Description
A nutrient-draining attack. The user's HP is restored by half the damage taken by the target.
