Essentials

Volt Absorb

Generation 3

Summary

Absorbs Electric moves, healing for 1/4 max HP.

Effect

Whenever an Electric-type move hits this Pokémon, it heals for 1/4 of its maximum HP, negating any other effect on it.

This ability will not take effect if this Pokémon is Ground-type and thus immune to Electric moves. Electric moves will ignore this Pokémon's Substitute.

This effect includes non-damaging moves, i.e. Thunder Wave.
