Absorb (Japanese:すいとる Absorb) is a Grass-type special move introduced in Generation I.

Description

A nutrient draining attack.

Effect

In Battle

It 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 Liquid Ooze, instead gaining the energy they recived from from absorbing the energy from the Pokémon, they lose the amount. If the user is holding a Big Root, they will receive 30% more HP from which they absorbed from a Pokémon.

Contests

Startles the Pokémon that appealed before the user.

Super Contests

Earn +3 if two Pokémon raise the Voltage in a row.

Contest Spectaculars

Quite an appealing move.
