Swallow (Japanese: のみこむ Swallow) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III. The Pokémon who are able to learn this move are also able to learn the related moves Stockpile and, with the exception of Munchlax, Trubbish, and Garbodor, Spit Up.
This move will fail if the user has not used Stockpile.

- One Stockpile → 25% of the user's maximum HP
- Two Stockpiles → 50% of the user's maximum HP
- Three Stockpiles → 100% of the user's maximum HP
Generation IV and on
In addition to before, Swallow also removes any Defense and Special Defense boosts gained through Stockpile.
