From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Belch (Japanese: ゲップ Belch) is a damage-dealing Poison-type move introduced in Generation VI.
Belch deals damage, but only if the user has previously eaten a Berry in the current battle (whether its own, or another's via Bug Bite, Pluck or Fling); if the user has not yet eaten a Berry, the player is prevented from selecting the move.
After eating a Berry, the player may use Belch for the rest of the battle, even if the Pokémon has been switched out and back in or the Berry is restored with Recycle, Harvest, or Pickup. Consuming a Berry through other means (such as Natural Gift, using Fling, or its Trainer giving it a Berry from the Bag) will not enable Belch to be used.
|| The user lets out a damaging belch on the target. The user must eat a Berry to use this move.
