Water Absorb
In-game description
Restores HP if hit by a Water-type move.

Water Absorb is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 9 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

When a Pokémon with Water Absorb is hit by a Water-type move, its HP is restored by one quarter 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).

Water Absorb will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Water-type move.

If a Pokémon with Water Absorb is holding an Absorb Bulb or Luminous Moss, Water Absorb absorbs the move, so the item's effect is not triggered.

Outside of battle

Water Absorb has no effect outside of battle.
