Parabolic Charge (Japanese: パラボラチャージ Parabola Charge) is a damage-dealing Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Parabolic Charge does damage and restores the user's HP equal to half 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.

Parabolic Charge cannot be used if the user is under the effects of Heal Block.
