Drain Punch (Japanese: ドレインパンチ Drain Punch) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM60 in Generation IV.

Effect

Generation IV

Drain Punch inflicts damage, and up to 50% of the damage dealt to the target is restored to the user as HP. If this attack deals 1 HP of damage, 1 HP will be restored to the user. Drain Punch has a base power of 60.

If Drain Punch breaks a substitute, no HP will be restored to the user. If HP is restored to the user when its current HP is greater than its maximum HP, its current HP will be set equal to its maximum HP.

If the target has the Ability Liquid Ooze, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.

If the user has a Big Root as its held item, it will recover 30% more HP than it normally would. Big Root does not increase damage dealt.

Generation V

Drain Punch's base PP is raised to 10 and the power is increased from 60 to 75.
