Mega Drain (Japanese: メガドレイン Mega Drain) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move

Mega Drain is the second in a line of three Grass-type HP draining attacks, the other two being Absorb and Giga Drain.

Effect

Mega Drain inflicts damage, and 50% of the damage dealt to the target is restored to the user. The amount of HP recovered is rounded down unless Mega Drain deals only 1 HP of damage. In this case, 1 HP would be restored to the user.

if 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.

Mega Drain cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.

Description

Description
