From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Wish (Japanese: ねがいごと Wish) is a non-damaging Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III.
The turn Wish is used, the user will make a wish. At the end of the next turn, the Pokémon in the user's current position will be healed by half its own maximum HP.
Wish can still be used even if the user's HP is full, but will do nothing if the Pokémon that should be healed has full HP.
While the effects of Wish have stayed the same, the order in which events happen in a given turn have changed, and Wish now kicks in before a Pokémon switches in for a Pokémon knocked out in that turn, meaning Wish can be wasted in such a situation.
Wish is now affected by the move Snatch and heals half of the user's maximum HP rather than the recipient's.
