Giga Drain (Japanese: ギガドレイン Giga Drain) is a damage-dealing Grass-type move introduced in Generation II. Giga Drain is the strongest in a line of three Grass-type HP draining attacks, the other two being Absorb and Mega Drain. It was TM19 from Generation II to Generation IV.

Effect

Generation II

Giga Drain will inflict damage on the target and ½ of the damage dealt will be restored to the user as HP.

The base PP of Giga Drain is 5 in this generation, and its base power is 60.

Giga Drain will always fail against a substitute.

Generation III

Giga Drain will now properly heal the user when damaging a substitute. When used on a Pokémon with the Liquid Ooze Ability, the user will lose the amount of HP it would have gained instead.

Giga Drain can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra two appeal points if the move Growth was used in the prior turn.

Generation IV

The move's base PP was raised to 10. 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. All other effects remain the same.

Generation V

Giga Drain's base power has been increased from 60 to 75.

Generation VI

Giga Drain cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.

User First Used In Notes
389 Torterra The three mountains on Torterra's shell glow green, and matching energy beams extend from their tips. The beams wrap around the opponent's body, drain its energy, and then recede back into Torterra's shell when the attack is complete.
Paul's Torterra Top-Down Training! Debut
291 Ninjask Ninjask flies in circles above the opponent for the entire duration of the attack. Its body glows green, leaving behind a turquoise trail of energy that forms a ring. Once the ring is completed, Ninjask's eyes glow red, and green static from the circle hits the opponent, draining its energy and making its body glow green.
