Poison Heal (Japanese: ポイズンヒール Poison Heal) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV. Three Pokémon can have this Ability. Prior to Generation V, it was the signature Ability of Shroomish and Breloom.

Effect

In battle

If the Pokémon is poisoned or badly poisoned, it will gain 1/8 of its maximum HP at the end of each turn instead of taking damage.

When a Pokémon with Poison Heal is badly poisoned, this has no effect on the Pokémon's HP recovery but does affect the amount of poison damage incurred should the Pokémon lose its Ability while in battle. E.g. if Gastro Acid is used on the Pokémon after five turns in battle, it will incur poison damage starting at 5/16 (instead of 1/16).

Outside of battle

Poison Heal has no effect outside of battle. Poison will still have its normal effect on the user outside of battle in Generation IV.
