Oblivion Wing (Japanese: デスウイング Death Wing) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Yveltal.


Oblivion Wing inflicts damage on the target and restores the user's HP by 75% of the damage dealt.

If the user is holding a Big Root, the HP restored is increased by 30%. Big Root does not increase the damage dealt.

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

Oblivion Wing cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.


Games Description
XY The user absorbs its target's HP. The user's HP is restored by over half of the damage taken by the target.
