Healing Wish (Japanese: いやしのねがい Healing Wish) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation IV.


Generation IV

Healing Wish causes the user to faint, then immediately switches in the new Pokémon. The new Pokémon's HP is restored and it is cured of any status conditions upon being sent out. Healing Wish will fail if the player has no other conscious Pokémon in their party.

Generation V

The receiving Pokémon is now sent out at the end of the turn rather than immediately sending it out.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

Healing Wish reduces the user's HP to 1, and restores all the HP and PP of team members in the same room as the user. It also removes any status conditions on those Pokémon and breaks any move seals caused by seal traps.


Games Description
The user faints. In return, the Pokémon taking its place will have its HP restored and status cured.
XY The user faints. In return, the Pokemon taking its place will have its HP restored and status conditions cured.
