In battle

Also, Damp prevents the Ability Aftermath from doing damage when its user faints. Damp affects non-adjacent Pokémon in Triple Battles.

If a self-destruction is prevented by Damp, the following message is displayed: "<name>'s Damp prevents <affected Pokémon> from using <move>!"

Outside of battle

Damp has no effect outside of battle.
