Self Ally Ally

Absorb deals damage and restores the user's HP by up to half of the damage dealt to the target. However, if the user uses this move on a Pokémon with the ability Liquid Ooze, instead of gaining HP, they lose HP by the amount they would have received if they gained it. If the user is holding a Big Root, they will receive 30% more HP from which they absorbed from a Pokémon. In double battles, Absorb can target any Pokémon other than the user. In triple battles, Absorb can only target a Pokémon that is adjacent to the user.
