Not a TM
Lowers the target's Attack by one stage. Heals the user by the target's current Attack, including modifiers, but not including this move's Attack-lowering effect.
If the target's Attack is already at -6, this move will fail. In any other situation that would prevent a stat modification, the healing will still succeed.
This reflects how the games treat moves and may be somewhat idealistic.
The user restores its HP by the same amount as the target’s Attack stat. It also lowers the target’s Attack stat.
