Leech Seed is a non-damaging Grass-type move.

Effect

Leech Seed plants a seed on the target. At the end of each turn that the target is under the effect of Leech Seed, 1/8 of the target's HP will be drained, and the same amount of HP will be restored to the Pokémon that is in the same position as the Pokémon that originally used Leech Seed (even if it was not the Pokémon that originally used the attack).

If the target has less than 16 HP, Leech Seed will drain 1 HP per turn. Leech Seed draining will occur even if the seeded Pokémon makes a substitute before the end of its turn.

Leech Seed will not work against Grass-type Pokémon, and attempts to seed an already-seeded Pokémon will fail.

If the target has the ability Liquid Ooze, the user takes damage instead of restoring HP. If the user is under the effect of Heal Block, Leech Seed will not restore any of the user's HP. However, the effect damage will be dealt normally.

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 remain the same.

Leech Seed can be removed by Haze, Rapid Spin or switching. If a Pokémon uses Baton Pass, Leech Seed will still be under effect, even if the switched in Pokémon is a Grass-type.
