Giga Drain (Japanese: ギガドレイン Giga Drain) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II. Giga Drain is the strongest in a line of three Grass-type HP draining attacks, the other two being Absorb and Mega Drain.

Effect

Generation II

Giga Drain will inflict damage on the target and ½ of the damage dealt will be restored to the user as HP.

The base PP of Giga Drain is 5 in this generation.

Generation III

Giga Drain functions the same as in Generation II, however, when used on a Pokémon with the Liquid Ooze ability, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.

Generation IV

The move's base PP was raised to 10. If the user has the Big Root as its held item, The user will receive 30% more HP than it would have. Big Root does not increase damage dealt. All other effects remain the same.

Generation V

The functions of this move are the same as in previous generations, however, the base power has been increased from 60 to 75.

User First Used In Notes
389 Torterra The three mountains on Torterra's back glow green. Glowing green energy beams then extend from the tops of the mountains at the opponent and wrap it up. Torterra then drains energy from the opponent. The energy beams go back into the mountains on Torterra's back when the attack is complete.
Paul's Torterra Top-Down Training! Debut
291 Ninjask Ninjask's body glows green and it flies above the opponent. It then starts flying in circles above the opponent's head, leaving behind a turquiose trail of energy as it does. Finally, when a turquiose circle appears above the opponent's head, Ninjask's eyes start to glow red while still spinning around and green static comes off the circle and hits the opponent, and its body glows green as the energy gets drained from it.
