Dry Skin is an Ability. Four species can have this Ability.
During intense sunlight, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will lose 1/8 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn. During rain, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will regain 1/8 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn.
Fire attacks do 25% more damage to a Pokémon with Dry Skin.
When a Pokémon with Dry Skin is hit by a Water move, its HP is restored by 1/4 of its maximum HP, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon (if a Pokémon with this Ability already has full HP, the Water-type move will do nothing). This effect will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Water-type move.
If a Pokémon with Dry Skin is holding an Absorb Bulb, Dry Skin absorbs the Water-type move so the item's effect is not triggered.
Outside of battle
Dry Skin has no effect outside of battle.
