Dry Skin (Japanese: かんそうはだ Dry Skin) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Seven Pokémon can have this Ability.
During harsh sunlight, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will lose ⅛ of its maximum HP at the end of each turn. During rain, a Pokémon with Dry Skin will regain ⅛ of its maximum HP at the end of each turn.
Fire-type attacks do 25% more damage to a Pokémon with Dry Skin.
When a Pokémon with Dry Skin is hit by a Water-type move, its HP is restored by one quarter of its maximum HP, and the move will have no effect on that Pokémon (if a Pokémon with this Ability already has full HP, the Water-type move will do nothing). This effect will not activate if the Pokémon is protected from the Water-type move.
If a Pokémon with Dry Skin is holding an Absorb Bulb or Luminous Moss, Dry Skin absorbs the Water-type move so the item's effect is not triggered.
Outside of battle
Dry Skin has no effect outside of battle.
