Water Absorb

Summary: Absorbs Water moves, restoring health equal to 0.1× the move's base power, or 1% for non-damaging moves. Restores 5% health with the use of an action in water.

Description

This Pokémon has particularly porous skin, allowing it to soak up water in the environment at will or even absorb the water utilized by attacks made against it. Instead of taking damage when struck by an opponent's Water-type attack, the Pokémon with this ability regains 1% HP for each 10 points of base power attributed to the attack by which it was struck. For Water-type attacks that cause no damage, 1% HP is regained, and no secondary effects of any Water-type attacks will have any effect on a Pokémon with Water Absorb.

This Pokémon may also, in an arena where standing water is available, take an action to soak up some of the surrounding liquid to regain 5% HP without the use of energy. However, if a Pokémon with this ability should absorb tainted water for any reason, it will lose HP instead of gain it and has a 10-30% chance of becoming poisoned, depending on the concentration of chemicals in the water.
